tinydns-conf creates a service directory D that runs tinydns(8). The name D must start with a slash and must not contain any special characters. Normally D is /etc/tinydns.
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.
tinydns-conf arranges for tinydns(8) to chroot to D/root and to run under the uid and gid of acct. The name acct must not contain any special characters.
tinydns-conf creates D/root/Makefile to run tinydns-data(8) upon request.
tinydns-conf arranges for tinydns(8) to listen for UDP packets on port 53 of ip, and to send outgoing packets from ip.
tinydns-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.
