axfrdns-conf - sets up a DNS zone-transfer service.
axfrdns-conf acct logacct D tiny ip
axfrdns-conf creates a service directory D that runs axfrdns(8) under
tcpserver(1). The name D must start with a slash and must not contain
any special characters. Normally D is /etc/axfrdns.
You can run the service under svscan(8) by using the update-service(8)
program on Debian GNU/Linux
update-service --add D
or by creating a symbolic link in the svscan(8) directory (normally
/service or /etc/service), e.g.:
ln -s D /service
The service will start within five seconds, and will be restarted upon
reboot. You can use svc(8) to control the service.
axfrdns-conf arranges for tcpserver(1) to listen for TCP connections on
port 53 of ip. It sets up D/tcp in tcprules(1) format to control
access to axfrdns(8); initially all access is denied. It also sets up
D/Makefile to compile tcp into tcp.cdb for tcpserver(1).
axfrdns-conf arranges for axfrdns(8) to chroot to tiny/root and to run
under the uid and gid of acct. The name tiny must start with a slash
and must not contain any special characters; normally it is
/etc/tinydns. The name acct must not contain any special characters.
axfrdns-conf creates an automatically rotated log directory in
D/log/main. The logs are owned by logacct. The corresponding
multilog(8) processes run under the uid and gid of logacct. The name
logacct must not contain any special characters.
