dnscache-conf - set up a DNS cache service
dnscache-conf acct logacct D [ ip ]
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
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
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.
