Third Edition of the "de facto bible" of DNS & BIND released

If you're using the Internet, you're already using DNS (Domain Name
System)--even if you don't know it. The just-released third edition of the
O'Reilly's "DNS & BIND" discusses one of the Internet's fundamental
building blocks: the distributed host information database that's
responsible for translating names into addresses, routing mail to its
proper destination, and many other services.

This new, third edition covers BIND 4.9, on which most commercial products
are currently based, and BIND 8, which implements many important new
features and will be the basis for the next generation of commercial name
servers. Whenever a feature is available only in the 4.8.3, 4.9, or 8.1.2
versions, or if there is a difference in behavior of the versions, the
authors carefully notes which version does what. It also covers topics like
DNS security (greatly improved with BIND 8.1), asynchronous notification of
changes to a zone, dynamic updates, and programming with Perl's Net::DNS
module.

What the Critic and Readers Said About Previous Editions:

"The bible for DNS and its associated lookup routines is DNS and Bind."
--Peter Collinson, Sun Expert, May 1998

"The best book on DNS that I know of is DNS and BIND by Paul Albitz and
Cricket Lui."--Doug Shaker, Boardwatch , June 1995

"If you're going to set up a DNS Server, save yourself some headaches and
get yourself a copy of the definitive book of the subject, DNS &
BIND."--Windows Sources February 1995

"a clear, straightforward, and sometimes even lighthearted text to make the
learning process as painless as possible."--Robert Slade, Computer News Vol
II, Issue 10

"For any DNS questions--general or specific--make sure and read DNS & BIND,
the seminal work by Paul Albitz and Cricket Lui. This book is what
convinced me, in May 1994, that setting up services on the Internet was a
learnable and doable proposition."-- Glenn Fleishman , NETGUIDE August 1996

"To understand DNS, you'll need to consult the standard reference text,
O'Reilly & Associates, DNS & BIND."--Jason Levitt, InformationWeek, Oct 21,
1996

"I picked up my knowledge of DNS piecemeal, first as a user and then as a
sysadmin running an inherited nameserver. And I learned most of what I know
about nameserver maintenance the hard way -- a process which would have
been much less painful if I had had a copy of DNS and BIND to guide me. If
you are running a nameserver then I would definitely recommend ownership of
your own copy. You may well be familiar with the basics already and you may
not need the more esoteric information, but name service is sufficiently
critical that getting the ordinary complexities right is essential. Albitz
and Liu are excellent guides to both the main boulevards and the crooked
side-alleys of the DNS." --Danny Yee

"Microsoft's only manual is an online help file that, for the most part,
refers the reader to DNS & BIND from O'Reilly & Associates, the de facto
Bible for these products."--Wayne Spivak, Network World, Dec 9, 1996

"We recommend the O'Reilly book DNS & BIND to help you get over the hump on
this one. We've seen it make DNS pros out of many of the formerly
lost."--Jack Ricard, Boardwatch Feb. 1997

"This is an outstanding book--system administrators need this book;
interested users will find it enlightening." --Elizabeth Zinkann, Sys
Admin, May 1997

"An excellent book that explains DNS and BINDI recommend this book if you
plan to implement more extensive DNS services or elaborate DNS
networks."--James Cimino, Networking Solutions, March 1997

About the Authors

Paul Albitz is a software engineer at Hewlett-Packard. Paul worked on BIND
for the HP- UX 7.0 and 8.0 releases. During this time Paul developed the
tools used to run the p.com domain. Since then Paul has worked on
networking HP's DesignJet plotter and on the fax subsystem of HP's
OfficeJet multifunction peripheral. As system administrator in the CS
Department of Purdue University, Paul ran versions of BIND before BIND's
initial release with 4.3 BSD. Paul and his wife Katherine live in San
Diego, CA.

Cricket Liu matriculated at the University of California's Berkeley campus,
that great bastion of free speech, unencumbered UNIX and cheap pizza. He
went to work for Hewlett-Packard after graduation and stayed at HP for nine
years. Cricket began managing the hp.com zone after the Loma Prieta
earthquake forcibly moved the zone's management from HP Labs to HP's
Corporate Offices. He was ostmaster@hp.com for over three years, and then
joined HP's Professional Services Organization to found HP's Internet
consulting program. Cricket currently runs his own DNS consulting and
training company, Acme Byte & Wire, with his friend Matt Larson. Cricket,
his wife, Paige, and their son, Walt, live in Colorado.
