Named (OS/2 name server)

Release date: 
Friday, 21 October, 2016



Authors/Port authors:

This is a very simple domain name server for OS/2. It is intended primarily for small networks which access the Internet via a dialup connection (where another, real name server will also be used).

The name database is, simply, the HOSTS file normally used by the OS/2 name resolution library. However, if the dialup connection is active, then another name server (typically that at the ISP) can be consulted as well.

There are other, more sophisticated, name server programs available; this one is, however, small, fast and free!

The package includes the following:

  • The NAMED.EXE executable program
  • The associated README.TXT file
  • A necessary DLL
  • A documentation file
  • A sample configuration file
  • Source code
