ISC Bind

Release date: 
Tuesday, 3 September, 1996



Authors/Port authors:

Bind (Berkely Internet Name Daemon) for OS/2.

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.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.

Manual installation

Program is distributed as ZIP package: download to temporary directory and unpack to destination folder. See below for download link(s).

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"

You can install the prerequisites with rpm running the following string in a command line:

yum install libc libcx libgcc1 libssp libstdc++6 libstdc++ libsupc++6 libsupc++ libgcc-fwd
