bind and named


Is there a difference between both? I'm really getting confused with this. In the services, there's named, but when I go in webmin, there's bind. So if named is running and I modify the bind settings, will it take affect, or are those two seperate dns servers?

Bind is the name of the project, named is the name of the server.

So they're both the same? Ok, makes more sense now. Now I need to learn how it works and how to set it up to cache and regularly download from the root servers.

Well, it's kind of like saying RedHat is linux. No, it's just a distribution, linux is really a kernel and a bunch of apps. Yes, it's just weird.

From above by name of the server, I mean executable.
