Re: UDP packet/DNS server

  • From: Eric Germann
  • Date: Mon Sep 28 21:26:33 1998

you have to admit, it does save one hell of a lot of typing for the 1918
IN-ADDR.ARPA delegations.

rfc1918.db
----------

@           IN    SOA   ns1.xxx.net. hostmaster.xxx.net. (
				1997101001     ; serial
				300            ; refresh
				300            ; retry
				604800         ; expire
				600)           ; minimum

				IN      NS        ns1.xxx.net.
				IN      NS        ns2.xxx.net.


*           IN      PTR     rfc1918.xxx.net.
-----------

then in named.bt

primary        16.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        17.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        18.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        19.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        20.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        21.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        22.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        23.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        24.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        25.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        26.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        27.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        28.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        29.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        30.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB
primary        31.172.in-addr.arpa       RFC1918.DB

repeat for 10.x.x.x and 192.168 space

To reiterate the question posed by the original poster, (donning asbestos),
why is this bad?
