NSD 3.2.11

Download:
nsd-3.2.11.tar.gz  |  sha1
Date:
09 Jul, 2012

Features

  • Fallback to AXFR if IXFR is unknown at the primary. NSD considers IXFR unknown at the primary if there is a negative response for the IXFR RRtype. This does not override the value for 'allow-axfr-fallback'.
  • Allow for reading in new DNSKEY algorithm mnemonics (RFC5155, RFC5702, RFC5933, and RFC6605 (ECDSA)).
  • Zone statistics, enable with --enable-zone-stats. This stores the BIND8 stats per zone in a configurable statistics file. This option does not scale and should therefore not be enabled when serving many zones.
  • Support for TLSA RRtype (DANE).

Bug Fixes

  • Fix for qtype ANY for a wildcard domain in NSEC signed zone: Don't add the wildcard domain NSEC into the answer section. Instead, put the wildcard expanded NSEC into the answer section and keep the wildcard domain NSEC in the authority section.

  • Fix restart failed due to bad ixfr packet because of zone removed from nsd.conf.
  • Bugfix #453: typo in nsdc man page.

NSD 3.2.9

Download:
nsd-3.2.9.tar.gz  |  sha1
Date:
23 Nov, 2011

Features

  • Minimize responses to reduce truncation: NSD will only add optional records to the authority and additional sections when the response size does not exceed the minimal response size. _p()The minimal response size is 512 (no-EDNS), 1480 (EDNS/IPv4), 1220 (EDNS/IPv6), or the advertized EDNS buffer size if that is smaller than the EDNS default. _p()The feature is enabled by default. You can disable it by configuring NSD with --disable-minimal-responses. _p()
  • Less NSEC3 prehashing. This will make NSD handle zone transfers faster, but will decrease the performance of NXDOMAIN and wildcard NODATA responses. Full prehashing is enabled by default. If you want less NSEC3 prehashing, configure NSD with --disable-full-prehash. Thanks Secure64 for the patch.

Bug Fixes

  • Bugfix #302: nsd accepts XFR but refuses to re-read the slave zone.

  • Fix to have no authority NS set processing for CNAMEs.
  • Fix nsd-checkconf to check tsig algorithms properly.
  • Set the AA bit on responses that have an authoritative CNAME.
  • Fix denial of existence response for empty non-terminal that looks like a NSEC3-only domain (but has data below it).

Download:
nsd-3.2.1.tar.gz  |  sha1
Date:
19 Jan, 2009

Download:
nsd-3.0.5.tar.gz  |  sha1
Date:
20 Mar, 2007

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where zonec would choke on unknown CERT RDATA types.

  • The nsdc control script will print 'nsd startup failed' if the nsd executable does not start (due to bad permissions, bad config, ...).

Bug Fixes

  • zonec will print an error when other data is put next to a CNAME.
  • Fixup unaligned memory access that could occur when reading ixfr.db with a partial transfer inside.
  • Fixup for the WKS RR type printout by nsd-patch and nsd-xfer.
  • Error message 'could not read database CRC' now only given on error.
  • ./configure --zonesdir=<directory for zone files> now works to set a default value for the zonesdir: <dir> nsd.conf directive. Set zonesdir: "" to disable the change of directory.
  • Bug: reload crashes with log message 'continuing with old database', and after that no more zone updates. Manual fix is to kill -HUP, but now fixed in software to try to reload again (and again).
  • Small speedup where xfrd could briefly be busy-waiting.
  • If master sends IXFR with glue that is already present in the zone this is silently accepted. Printed in debug mode -L 2. To make the log file smaller.
  • Exponential backoff for zones that never worked to max of 4 hours. For expired zones the SOA retry values are used.
  • allow-notify acl entries 'NOKEY' match only queries without TSIG.
  • Answers to valid notifies contained wrong RR counts in the header. The notifies were processed correctly, but now the acknowledgement reply is in correct DNS format.

nsd-2.3.1.tar.gz  |  md5
Date:
31 Aug, 2005

Bug Fixes

  • zonec: Don't crash when generating error messages outside of zone files.
  • nsd: when logging to a file the pid is now printed.
  • nsd: Reset 'boot' time in statistics when reloading the database, since the statistics are reset to 0 on a reload.

  • Bug #98: Allow mnemonics for DS and RRSIG algorithm field.

NSD 2.3.0

Download:
nsd-2.3.0.tar.gz  |  md5
Date:
02 May, 2005

Features

  • DNSSEC is now enabled by default. NSD should be fully compliant with RFC4033, RFC4034, and RFC4035.

Bug Fixes

  • nsd: Ensure that the number of -a flags does not exceed the maximum specified by MAX_INTERFACES in config.h.
  • nsd-xfer: Use serial number arithmetic (RFC1982) for the zone serial check
  • nsdc: Don't pass (fake) serial number to nsd-xfer if the zone file does not exist.
  • zonec: Loading many zones would cause namedb_find_zone to slow down, performance patch by Kazunori Fujiwara.
  • Bug #96: nsd-xfer did not handle 8-bit domain names correctly.

NSD 2.2.1

Download:
nsd-2.2.1.tar.gz  |  md5
Date:
21 Feb, 2005

Features

  • The message priority is now included when logging to a file.

Bug Fixes

  • Zero length RDATA using the unknown RR notation was not working (except for the APL RR type).
  • Bug #93: './configure' error message containing a comma must be properly bracketed.
  • Bug #94: nsd-xfer: Handle unexpected EOF when receiving AXFR data. Timeout if no data is received for more than 120 seconds (see the TCP_TIMEOUT parameter in config.h).
  • Bug #95: An owner starting with an asterisk label ("*") was being treated as its own wildcard child.

NSD 2.2.0

Download:
nsd-2.2.0.tar.gz  |  md5
Date:
18 Jan, 2005

Features

  • nsd-xfer: replacement program for named-xfer to perform zone transfers using AXFR. TSIG is supported by nsd-xfer but not yet by the nsd server. DNSSEC is also supported. TSIG requires OpenSSL version 0.9.7 or higher, configure using --disable-tsig if you do not have OpenSSL installed. Configure using --with-ssl=path if OpenSSL is not installed at a standard location.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed endian problem in WKS record.
  • Protocol can now be specified numerically in WKS record.
  • Allow escape sequences (\DDD) in TTL, RR class, and RR type.
  • The zone compiler now accepts many more characters in unquoted strings such as domain name labels. The characters no longer need to be escaped with a backslash.
  • Close included files after reading.
  • Maximum TCP message size is now 65535 bytes. AXFR response packets are still limited to 16383 bytes for optimal compression of dnames.
  • The TSIG key for AXFRs can now also be stored in the file <zonename>.tsiginfo. This makes it possible to use TSIG with multiple master servers.
  • Signals are no longer blocked while performing I/O so the server should respond quicker to signals.
  • Fixed parsing of LOC rdata. Fractions and altitude were not handled correctly.

NSD 1.2.1

Download:
nsd-1.2.1.tar.gz  |  md5
Date:
02 Jul, 2003

Bug Fixes

  • AXFR terminates early if a zone containa a CNAME pointing the the zone's domain name (SOA record) (bug #56).
  • During an AXFR memory above the top of the stack was accessed. This could lead to occassional AXFR errors (bad packets).
  • NSD now prints its version number and exits when invoked with the -v flag (bug #57).
  • NSD prints help information and exits when invoked with the -h flag.

NSD 1.2.0

Download:
nsd-1.2.0.tar.gz  |  md5
Date:
01 Jul, 2003

Features

  • NSD is now a single parent process (handling child termination and database reloads) plus multiple UDP and TCP child processes handling queries. Before the parent process also handled UDP queries. This change simplifies the parent and child processes and allows the use of multiple concurrent UDP servers.
  • Experimental plugin support. This required a minor, incompatible change to the database format. Make sure you recompile your database. Use --enable-plugins to enable.
  • Full IPv6 support (for multi-homing and for Linux, thanks to Colm MacCarthaigh and Jun-ichiro itojun Hagino). Use --enable-ipv6 to enable.
  • Support for multi-homing with TCP connections.
  • Support for SunOS 4.x has been dropped.

Bug Fixes

  • CHAOS TXT queries failed on big-endian machines.
  • Portability fixes for Tru64 (thanks to Stephane Bortzmeyer), HP-UX, and MacOS X (thanks to Ronald van der Pol).
  • Removed compile time limit on maximum number of TCP child servers.
  • Support for debugging UDP and TCP queries.
  • Always ensure there is enough room for the EDNS record when answering a query with EDNS enabled.
