my work

Welcome to Claudiu's djbdns site

This is my site dedicated to Dan J. Berstein's wonderful Domain Name System tools package. This include a full featured DNS cache, a lightweight and fast authoritative name server on UDP and another one for TCP, and a bunch of another DNS client and server utilities. djbdns main page is located at While djbdns is good, there are issues about interoperation with BIND, missing features in default package and I want to address these limitations. All modification you make to this package break the $500 security guarantee. If you're not interested, then this site is for you. As with any piece of software, you must understand that I'm not responsible for anything can happen using documentation, and software from this site.

My goals are:

  • making djbdns installing as dumb as possible
  • making djbdns highly interoperable with BIND
  • providing documentation about installing, configuring, and operating djbdns

It's lot of work to do and I need to mantain the programs security Dan has provided. If you contribute or want to contribute, then contact me.
