BIND9 under pfSense

  • Has anybody ever tried to get BIND running on pfSense? It seems like it wouldn't be too much work, and the pkg_add worked fine (I think), but I have a couple of problems:

    1. I can't figure out where the config/zone files are
    2. I'm not sure how to start named from RC

    The reason that I want this is that TinyDNS can't perform RFC2136 registration of DHCP addresses. Any suggestion that accomodates RFC2136 fits me fine!

    Thanks in advance,

    Running pfSense 1.2.1 on i386 hardware

  • I have it running for quite some time,
    now it is runing on  1.2-RELEASE.

    It was initially installed through pkg_add.
    Config file is in /usr/local/etc/named.conf and zone files are in /var/named
    I use the following in my /etc/rc

    Start BIND

    echo "Starting BIND..."
    echo "done."

    echo "Bootup complete"

    I am using it for split dns config, dont know if tinydns can do the same thing I would like to switch to it if it is possible?

  • TinyDNS can do split dns no problem.
