DNRD is a proxy DNS daemon. It supports several forward servers for redundancy and/or load-balancing. DNS queries for specific domains can be forwarded to a specific group of DNS servers (with redundancy and load balancing) for that domain. It is very useful in VPN and dialup environments but can also be used as a DNS cache or ad-blocker for networks and workstations.

Release Notes: Some minor bugs have been fixed and an option for generating statistics has been added. An option for specifying a blacklist has also been added. The default user id has been changed from "nobody" to "dnrd".
Release Notes: A buffer and stack overflow that can be used for DoS attacks and possible remote execution was fixed. DNRD runs in a chroot environment and as non-root, but it is recommended to upgrade anyway.
