Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

View Poll Results: For DNS
I have no idea what my computer uses.
I use my ISP's DNS and I like NXDOMAIN hijacking.
I use my ISP's DNS and I do not like NXDOMAIN hijacking.
I run my own DNS cache on my LAN.
I run my own DNS server on my LAN.
I run my own DNS server and DNS cache on my LAN.
I run an authoritative server on the WAN side and DNS cache on the LAN.
Sent a message to admin and asked to add one more option to poll. "I use Opendns or easydns or some third party DNS."
salasi, I did ask to include which DNS you're using,thanks. Do you have your djbdns patched up?
Have you looked at dnscurve?
It messed with my spam filter, which did some lookups on IPs to try and detect emails coming from zombie SMTP servers.
I also noticed that Tor had to include some funky testing to detect these sorts of hijacks. My log file used to always get a few lines like "DNS query nsjnbjsbsjbjs.invalid and 6 other attempts all returned 126.96.36.199. Assuming DNS redirecting is in use, blacklisting 188.8.131.52." That kind of thing just bothers me.
