Hi,

I have setup bind on my mandrake box and wanted to know if there is a way of logging dns requests. I will have a few people using it as their dns server, and would like to log all queries made by them. Is this possible?

Thanks

I beleive you may need to re-compile the source code with some logging options to be able to do that.

Good Luck,

Tarik

There are some ways that you could log the requests, but trying to do so with named is gonna be a mess. The easiest way to log the requests would probably be to set up ipchains to permit the traffic and log it.
