What do you do for DNS on your network?


If you know which DNS package you use post it here.

I use openDNS, not my ISP's. You should throw that in your poll

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?

I use my ISP's DNS, and I absolutely HATE any sort of hijacking. I refuse to use OpenDNS because of that. If they offered a way to opt-out of NXDOMAIN hijacking, I would gladly use them.

Sometimes, I also use Google DNS. (8.8.8.8 might just be the coolest DNS server address ever.)

nsd for authoritative on the WAN side, bind for cache (with some LAN hosts added in a couple zone files) on the LAN side (it hits the WAN side, but cannot be queried from the WAN side).

FWIW, can't get the additional poll question added. Seems like there should be a poll edit feature. At least have one during the first hour of the poll or so.

I didn't know opendns did nxdomain hijack. Too bad.

Yeah, it's the only fault I can find with them. It's just such a big deal for me, that one flaw's the deal-breaker.

I answered, "I use my ISP's DNS and I do not like NXDOMAIN hijacking." The hijacking is annoying but nothing more and quick like a bunny I just close the page.

After reading the responses, though, I'm going to look into this OpenDNS thing.

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 1.2.3.4. Assuming DNS redirecting is in use, blacklisting 1.2.3.4." That kind of thing just bothers me.
