Hey there, I have installed a BIND9 server on my Linux server. But I was struggling to get it working as I searched for various websites to explain the different settings for BIND.

Does anyone know where I can find a good guide to configuring and securing BIND9? I am running on Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit though I may changed OSes down the road.

Here is a nice website about bind. It is actually a book.

Very nice, I feel better when I have manual for the software I use. On a side note is there one of those for DHCPd? – ianc1215 Feb 3 '11 at 23:04
I don't think so. Just the softcopy documentation it comes with, plus – Mikel Feb 3 '11 at 23:07
