DNS

Acronym for Domain Name System.

New DNS System

mr-russ and dcoles have been setting a new DNS system that automatically extracts DNS entries from the Melbourne Wireless database. To add an entry, simply edit your node details and select the entry typee and enter the IP address under Services.

Queries can take the form SERVICE.NODE.node.melbournewireless.org.au or IP.NODE.node.melbournewireless.org.au (used for reverse DNS). For example, 'www.jqy.node.melbournewireless.org.au' will resolve to 10.10.133.83.

At present this is running on node JQY and is accessible through 203.29.53.3 (or 10.10.133.83 on network).

Local configuration

Forward DNS should be handled automatically by the public DNS system (node.melbournewireless.org.au should be delegated to this server). If you would like to use the reverse DNS features you will have to set up your system to directly query the server.

This can be done by editing '/etc/resolv.conf':
# Search path (optional)
# Allows you to specify names like 'www.dcoles.node' rather than requiring the the full entry
search melbournewireless.org.au


# Query the Melbourne Wireless nameserver first
nameserver 10.10.133.83
#nameserver 203.29.53.1 # Alternative, public address


# Default nameserver - server to handle all other requests
nameserver 8.8.8.8 # Insert your DNS server here!


Future enhancements
