New IPv6 DNS and BIND Book

New book provides important information for IPv6 BIND configuration

I was excited when I saw that Cricket Liu published an update to his popular DNS & BIND book covering the IPv6-specific details of DNS. I rushed right out and pre-ordered "DNS & BIND on IPv6". Enabling your DNS servers for IPv6 is an important step in your Internet-edge IPv6 implementation strategy. This book covers all the pertinent information BIND DNS administrators need to get started with IPv6.

I had first purchased the O'Reilly and Associates "DNS and BIND" book back in the mid-1990s. At the time I was administering some large DNS servers and I wanted to be sure I knew what I was doing.

It wasn't untilBIND 8.4 (or BIND 8.X with the IPv6 patch) we able to configure the new-style zone file syntax with IPv6 resource records and IPv6 reverse-mapping zones.
