NAME

walldns-conf - sets up a DNS wall service.

 

SYNOPSIS

walldns-conf acct logacct D ip

 

DESCRIPTION

walldns-conf creates a service directory D that runs walldns(8). The name D must start with a slash and must not contain any special characters. Normally D is /etc/walldns.

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.

walldns-conf arranges for walldns to chroot to D/root and to run under the uid and gid of acct. The name acct must not contain any special characters.

walldns-conf arranges for walldns(8) to listen for UDP packets on port 53 of ip, and to send outgoing packets from ip.

walldns-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.
