NAME

       dnscache-conf - set up a DNS cache service

SYNOPSIS

       dnscache-conf acct logacct D [ ip ]


DESCRIPTION

       dnscache-conf creates a service directory D that runs dnscache The name
       D must start with a slash and must not contain any special characters.
       Normally D is /etc/dnscache or /etc/dnscachex.

       You can run the service under svscan by creating a symbolic link in the
       svscan directory:

       ln -s D /service

       The service will start within five seconds, and will be restarted upon
       reboot.  You can use svc to control the service.

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

       dnscache-conf arranges for dnscache to listen for UDP packets and TCP
       connections on port 53 of ip.

       ip is optional; if it is not supplied, dnscache-conf arranges for
       dnscache to listen on ::1.

       dnscache-conf creates D/root/ip/127.0.0.1 and D/root/ip/::1 so that
       dnscache will accept queries from 127.0.0.1 and ::1.

       dnscache-conf puts 128 bytes of not-particularly-secret data into
       D/seed and arranges for dnscache to pass D/seed to dns_random_init If
       your system has a good source of random data, you can replace D/seed
       with 128 bytes of data from that source.

       dnscache-conf creates an automatically rotated log directory in
       D/log/main.  The logs are owned by logacct.  The corresponding multilog
       processes run under the uid and gid of logacct.  The name logacct must
       not contain any special characters.
