DNS server

Hi guys!
I was just wondering if anyone had written an authoritative DNS server
in
Ruby? It would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

What are you trying to accomplish that can’t be done with standard DNS
servers?

I was hoping to have a very simple one in ruby, nothing different to
other
servers.

Sorry if I’m making more of this than you intend, but by “very simple” I
think you mean a reasonably-full featured DNS server that is far easier to
install, configure, manage, and secure than the standard servers. Right?
What about a CLI/DSL + Rails interface on top of a standard server?

In a nutshell, yes! :slight_smile: Ill look into CLI/DSL. Any where I should start?

Or you could look into somthing else than Bind (which no doubt what is
giving you problems with config :slight_smile:

My personal favourite: http://cr.yp.to/djbdns.html

It could also work with a Rails interface but to me that would be
extra complexity
