lwresd.conf - Lightweight Resolver Daemon configuration guidelines
Posted on 2005-04-24
I am interested in configuring lwresd. Is /etc/lwresd.conf used in lieu of /etc/resolve.conf or in addition to it?
What is the format of an lwresd.conf file? What are the keywords and values that are allowed?
The manual page for lwsresd makes no mention of a -c option only a -C, however entering "lwresd --help" reveals that "-c" is a valid option and the description implies that lwresd.conf serves a different purpose than resolv.conf.
I have never found any example of a lwresd.conf file on google. I have found that a zero length /etc/lwresd.conf file was installed somehow on my linux.
In general, using "rndc" I am unable to prove that "lwresd" is working correctly and I suspect that the root cause of the issue is that the resolver libraries and lwresd.conf are not on the same page and that a properly configured lwresd.conf remedy this.
