This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Quickstart note by Bernd (from Usenet):

  • setup your syslogd if not done before
  • create a file named "random" and fill it with some garbage keyboard input (about 250 chars)
  • in \bind9\sbin: "rndc-confgen.exe -a -r random" to create the keyfile
  • create/edit config files
  • to start the server: "named -f", to stop the server: "rndc.exe stop"
