Puget Sound Technology offering DNS administration

Puget Sound Technology's next workshop covers beginning DNS (Domain Name
System) administration. The class will be held Wednesday, July 24, 6:30
p.m. to 9:30 p.m., in Everett, Wash. This class will cover the basics
of configuring the BIND named software for providing domain name services.

The BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Daemon) software is the most popular
domain name server; and a few surveys indicate that it handles around
85-percent of the internet's DNS requests. The free and open source
software is available for various Unix operating systems.

The workshop covers basic DNS concepts, common types of
resource records, domain name registration, root zones, DNS zones, and
setting up backup DNS (secondary or slave servers). The workshop will
also teach about reverse lookups (in-addr.arpa) and DNS troubleshooting

This course is one of a series of ongoing open source seminars
provided by Puget Sound Technology. Upcoming workshops include:
Installing Linux; Exploring the KDE Graphical Environment;
Maintaining BSD Systems; and Setting up a NAT (IP Masquerading) and
Firewall Router.

Seating is limited. For more further information and to register, visit
