DNS server that pulls data from an LDAP directory
LDAPDNS is a ultra-fast, stable, multithreaded DNS server that pulls
data from an LDAP directory. It supports RFC1279 (bind-style),
Microsoft Active Directory, and its own directory layouts.

welcome to LDAPDNS.
i wrote LDAPDNS simply because there is no other LDAP<->DNS gateway that
I found useful, and infact, there are only two others that I am aware of:
1. Microsoft Active Directory
2. BIND+LDAP (patch)
If you need to know why these are completely wrong, go elsewhere, because I'm

the zone-transfer server (ldapaxfr) works similar to djbdns axfrdns except that
it pulls "zones" out of the ldap server.
the zone-transfer server REQUIRES that the AXFR environment variable be set to:
a single dot
or a root of the attempted zone
before allowing a zone transfer to occur. AXFR can be disabled (by not setting
the AXFR environment variable, or setting it to an empty string) and ldap
a lot of people are curious as to how ldapdns stacks up to other DNS servers.

To configure LDAPDNS, you will need some kind of LDAP browser, or my
administration scripts. See RE
the add_generic_record and set_generic_record tools use a format string to
pack the data properly.
do you use ldapdns? do you like it? do you want to know how you can help?
