IPv6 Reverse DNS

IPv6 is fun, if you know how to handle it ! As a “sponsor LIR”, i got my own AS and a small /44 IP Space. So, as we all do “forward” DNS with our Domains, i’d like to have Reverse DNS as well. And as i don’t have a legacy IP Range, i like todo it with my v6 Space. Special thanks to Christian for his remote Hands/Tips. Appreciate it!

PowerDNS on OpenBSD

Run PowerDNS on OpenBSD I’m mostly happy with NSD as Authoritative Nameserver. But why not look over the fence and have a look at PowerDNS ? At least the API looks promising to me … Install Package doas pkg_add powerdns-- Create Folder, DB and set Permission doas mkdir /var/db/pdns doas sqlite3 /var/db/pdns/pdns.sql < /usr/local/share/doc/pdns/schema.sqlite3.sql doas chown -R _powerdns:wheel /var/db/pdns/ Update Config File /etc/pdns/pdns.conf # DB gsqlite3-database=/var/db/pdns/pdns.sql launch=gsqlite3 setuid=_powerdns # Tuning & Protection max-queue-length=5000 overload-queue-length=2500 # Webserver webserver=yes webserver-address=ip-of-your-nameserver webserver-allow-from=127.
