can you remove the article as its full of mistakes and does not teach people the correct way of setting up bind 9.2.2 at all.


for example you have: ./configure -prefix=/usr/local/bind9 - it should be: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/bind9


there is no mention of rndc which is the correct way to control and manage bind 9.


and last but not least, no security considerations at all.


basically if you follow these directions, you have a full recursive dns server for anyone in the world to use and abuse.


disappointed in such a bad article has flagship status on o'reilly!
