How can this work?
So i have been a linux admin for a while now. Well got a email with this attached. This company fasthealth is getting a patent for basic dns. If they do this can they sue everyone who uses this type of dns setup?

I'm no legal expert, but I really doubt any such patent would be enforced in court given that similar error recovery systems are undoubtedly already in use by many companies.

I agree with this. They may be getting a patent for the basic dns but it probably is not the exact same thing. Legal actions are hard to prove.

no way impossible
nice one jeffro funny
on the series side DNS is part of tcp/ip protocols and is not up for patent's if its a sub domain inside a companies domain yeh or an application that speeds up the process in architectures yeh

read chapter 11 understanding tcp/ip ( ) isbn 1-904811-71-x
maybe you have either misread or you have been misled go back and read it again if your concerned but its a crap timewaster micro soft would have been on it years ago dont worry about it tcp/ip is fundemental and there is no holes that some little company can screw us all on its locked in . good luck if you want to waste your time researching a "no brainer"
ps dont think imk being cheeky but if any of us have been helpful press the thumb not enough people do and tend to post a thanks to the thread
