NAME

       tinydns-conf - sets up a DNS publication service

SYNOPSIS

       tinydns-conf acct logacct D ip


DESCRIPTION

       tinydns-conf creates a service directory D that runs tinydns.  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 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.

       tinydns-conf arranges for tinydns 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 upon request.

       tinydns-conf arranges for tinydns 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
       processes run under the uid and gid of logacct.  The name logacct must
       not contain any special characters.
