DNS Enabler for Leopard, version 3.0.3

Category : Technology/DNSEnablerForLeopard3dot0dot3.txt

Leopard uses BIND version 9.4.1-P1, whch is set up by default to disallow recursive queries from outside the subnet that the server is on.

So, I've built a new version of DNS Enabler for Leopard, version 3.0.3, that allows the user to change this behaviour (by clicking on the "Allow recursive queries from outside subnet" checkbox, below).

I've also updated all the screen shots on the DNS Enabler for Leopard web page today.

For a future version of DNS Enabler, I'd like to work on allowing a variety of BIND options to be set from the interface, like Log Level, etc, and also to see if I can implement views, so that you show the local IP address of a host name to queries coming from the local sub-net, and the public IP address to queries coming from the public network. This is going to be more intricate, so I'll need a bit more time to think about it.

For MailServe, I'll need to put back one feature from Tiger that is missing from the Leopard version due to the lack of time - i.e., the ability to flush or delete a message from the mail queue. I hope to do that by the end of the week, and then, after that, to really get going on the Dovecot version.

For WebMon for Leopard, I'd like to add the ability to set up Virtual Hosts, while still being able to set up SSL for the main domain. Wonder if that's possible to be done?

So, broadly, these are what I would be working on. There's more to come, of course, from my ever-lengthening to-do list (which I would try to publish, one day) but, for now, one step at a time.
