Bind DLZ on Rails is a Web-based user interface for managing BIND with the bind-dlz extensions on a MySQL 5.0 backend. BIND is a DNS server, and the bind-dlz extensions enhance BIND with support for database backeneds. This simplifies the management of thousands of zones and provides added redundancy (by way of database replication).
Roster is DNS management software for use with Bind 9. It is licensed under the BSD license. It is written in Python, and uses a MySQL database with an XML-RPC front-end. It contains a set of command line user tools that connect to the XML-RPC front-end. The config files for BIND are generated from the MySQL database, so a live MySQL database is not needed. The software has four basic components. The core includes the database interface and core API, and contains the authorization layer. The server is an SSL enabled multi-threaded XML-RPC server. It also contains the LDAP authentication layer. The config manger creates BIND config files using the core API, and handles pushing the files to their appropriate servers. The user tools contain over 20 tools to create, list, and remove records, zones, views, DNS servers, DNS server sets, groups, users, and the assignments between them all. There is currently support for views, many DNS servers in many configurations, IPv6, user/group authorization, LDAP authentication, and Unicode hosts.
Unnamed un-names unwanted DNS entries. It was written to solve the problem of upstream DNS servers inserting bogus records for NXDOMAINs. It can be used to filter unwanted domain names like ads, porn, time wasters, etc. It is modular, so extensions are easy. Extensions can be written in Lua or compiled as shared objects.
pymds is a simple, authoritative-only DNS server that has a simple module system for customizing how name resolution happens. The main motivation for starting this project was to create a simple system for building smarter DNS servers, capable of geography awareness, geographic load balancing, application aware load balancing, etc. Current modules implement standard behavior of using a file based DB to answer queries and to provide simple round-robin load-balancing across several servers by altering the order that IP addresses are returned.
tzoperl is a Perl Client-Daemon for TZO DDNS Services. The service works with dial-up, DSL, Cable Modems, ISDN, and most types of connections that get you connected to the Internet. TZO gives you a domain which will point to your machine to make it easier to run services on your machine. TZO also has a specialized mail store and forward service that will hold all mail for your domain/s if you go offline for a while.
