If you don’t have that I suggest that you first read my two other posts on how to install them: Setting up a DNS for the local network on the Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) server Setting up a DHCP server on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) server Step by step instructions Apparently the Ubuntu server is installed with an App Armor profile that prevents bind to write to the /etc/bind directory.
The default profile suggests that these files should be put in /var/lib/bind.
Choose your platform to discover some of the available options: Windows - mac OS - Linux / BSD - Android - i OS or run the software on a router.
Firewall setup: although some resolvers may prefer a different port, the default port used by the DNSCrypt protocol is 443.
option domain-name "home.lan"; option domain-name-servers lan; default-lease-time 600; max-lease-time 7200; # If this DHCP server is the official DHCP server for the local # network, the authoritative directive should be uncommented. 5.1 Remove the general read rights from the configuration files: The dns database files are now being rewritten by the bind service.
When you visit a website, Windows XP tries to speed things up by placing the DNS information about that site, into a DNS cache on your PC.
A couple companies, organizations and individuals are operating public recursive DNS servers supporting the DNSCrypt protocol, so that all you need to run is a client.But we can tweak the registry to NOT store negative entries at all!There is ALSO another potential pitfall with the Windows XP DNS cache...A constantly updated list of open DNSCrypt resolvers can be downloaded to replace the default CSV file shipped with the dnscrypt-proxy client.If you are running your own public DNS resolver in order to help make the Internet a more secure place, please submit a pull request to have your resolver added to the list of public DNS resolvers.
