SendIP is a command-line tool to send arbitrary IP packets. It has a large number of options to specify the content of every header of a RIP, RIPng, BGP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, or raw IPv4/IPv6 packet. It also allows any data to be added to the packet. Checksums can be calculated automatically, but if you wish to send out wrong checksums, that is supported too.
JH2N (Java host to named conversion program) converts a hosts file to a full BIND 8 or 9 configuration. JH2N was inspired by the h2n.pl program included in the O'Reilly "DNS and BIND" book. Various options are available to enhance its operation by incuding external files. Using the simple host file syntax, very large and complex zones can be maintained.
Dnsupdate creates DNS tables from a hosts file and the dnsupdate configuration file. It can be used to update or maintain the DNS tables. Hosts and aliases are added dynamically. Supports BIND 8 or higher. It has been tested on Sparc Solaris 8 and i386 FreeBSD 4.2 platforms. And should be easily portable to other platforms.
Posadis is a domain name server for Unix and Win32 systems. It can both act as an authoritive and as a caching DNS server, and it supports standard DNS master files, zone transfers, and DNS Notify. Its modular structure allows plug-ins to define new zone types and add new functionality.
The Capibara Distributed URL Cloaking Kit is a reliable URL cloaking system using low QOS hosts and lines such as home PCs and DSL or cable connections. CDUCK combines DNS server/Web server functionality and a strict security model for the creation of reliable and safe domain Web cloaking.
myqslBind manages clusters of ISC BIND 9 name servers. It has support for unlimited views, secondary only zones, unlimited masters, hidden masters, and slave name servers. It has template-based end-user and admin interface programs for your Web 2.0 interface. It uses a company contact role permissions model. It is very stable. It is not a MySQL DNS server, but a static configuration model from a MySQL replication cluster. It has a technical schema based back-office for ISP MySQL developers.
PowerDNS Authoritative Server is a high-performance authoritative nameserver with a host of backends. Besides plain BIND configuration files, PDNS reads information from MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MongoDB, and many other databases. Backends can easily be written in any language, and a sample Perl backend is provided. PDNS powers around 30-40% of all domain names in many parts of the world, including >90% of all DNSSEC domains in Europe.
NovaDNS is a program to manage many BIND zonefiles (domains) from a user-friendly, Web-based GUI. The zones are stored in a MySQL database, maintained through the Web GUI, and are periodically generated from the database. User information is also stored in a MySQL database. Users can only maintain their own domains, while administrators can maintain all domains (zone files) on the server. This program is especially useful for large ISPs with many customers.
