I am using Debian on a VPS with static IP and my home network behind PPP with dynamic IP. My pfSense router/firewall shall update my host home.mydomain.tld via RFC2136 style updates.

After lots of reading through different tutorials I still have no clue how to setup this up correctly. There are some hosts in my zone file and I want to allow updates with a secret key for only 1 host.

Debian automatically creates the file /etc/bind/rndc.key. I'd like to use a 2nd key and keep this key for local updates which my change all zones.

How to configure BIND to allow this?

I've got it working today with the help of this website which I had just found.
