Similar to the question asked here: How to export zone file in whm / webhost, I was looking for a way to AXFR zonefiles and was told by the hostgator staff that they will not enable it.
They offered to copy over the particular zonefiles I need to distribute to slaves, but that's a one time static thing and I actually needed to update slave servers that I'm running with this data as it occasionally changes. So that didn't really help me.
Since the zones in question are under one of their 'shared hosting' plans, allowing zone transfers - even to specific IP addresses is out of the question.
Is there a script out there I can use to farm the two zones I need to have from hostgator on a regular basis?
I looked at http://network-tools.com/default.asp?prog=dnsrec&host=SLD.TLD but that only provided a couple of A and NS RRs, I need all of the A, NS, TXT, and MX RRs. I don't need SOA RRs since I'm just going to create other master zones on another server that I can actually slave from.
