BIND (DNS) Entries


Hi,

I am experimenting with BIND for a project. Can anyone please explain how we can dynamically add, remove and update entries in the BIND database?

I am having trouble understanding this and I need to set it up to work in a few weeks time.

I am working under FreeBSD but any Linux example is also more than welcomed. I just need to get the idea so I can then build it myself.

All the help provided is much appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks for the reply bathory. I am actually implementing the system now. Anyone knows how I can convert a csh script into a cgi one?

Need it to send nsupdate arguments!

Reverse Updates

I have setup my DNS server (BIND) for dynamic updates and it works fine. But I also need to do the same for the reverse updates! How do I do that?
