RFC 8020 violation of Delphinusdnsd

January 8th, 2017

When delphinusdnsd has a zone.tld domain name and that contains a _25._tcp.mail.zone.tld domain name then when someone looks up just _tcp.mail.zone.tld the daemon replies with an NXDOMAIN. This is wrong. It should reply with NODATA which is NOERROR with nothing in the data section. Needless to say I'm going to try to fix this before the 1.1.0 release.


BIND didn't reply with AD flag

January 5th, 2017

I made a configuration mistake in my BIND options. I had set dnssec-validation yes; but this was wrong, this is how it should look like:

# grep dnssec named.conf
        dnssec-enable yes;
        dnssec-validation auto;
Only with the auto set will the AD flag appear and validation is being done. Thanks google for helping me find the problem.


Goodbye Mac OS X port

January 3rd, 2017

I have decided to drop the Mac OS X port for delphinusdnsd. If anyone wants to pick this up all it really needs is a Makefile update. The reason I do this is because Mac OS X is a dying OS at my house. I only have 1 native Mac OS X computer left and I don't want to pollute it with Mac Ports. Also I'm against running delphinusdnsd on a computer that has an open microphone for Siri. Let the real operating systems survive.


Delphinusdnsd will be released January 29th

January 2nd, 2017

There is new news on the delphinusdnsd website. To quote:

"DelphinusDNSD 1.1.0 is in alpha-testing, the release date is fixed to 
around January 29, 2017. Contact me if you want to help. The changes are 
far from staggering, they are more about programmer freedom. I have replaced 
the Ruby program with a C program and rely less on an external program 
provided by BIND. So I escape licensing caveats and am in a much better 
position. Due to my limited time (so far a 1 person effort), I did not get 
TODO's in that I really want to see in, maybe for the 1.2.0 release, which 
would be in 2018 :-}."
I still invested a lot of time in this in 2016. But my resources are limited. Any (open source) programmer will tell you this.. (time is not enough). But I guess it happens everywhere.


Happy New Year 2017

December 31st, 2016

As I write this, it's already been new years in Fiji, so the Earth is rotating in 2017 already. I had a very good year in 2016, and hoping 2017 will be good too. I wish the same for you.


Hacking days

December 27th, 2016

I'm on vacation. I've decided to use most of my vacation days to hack on delphinusdnsd. If you're interested in progress I'd suppose you could look at this link. Thanks for well-wishes!
