iDNS is a configuration tool that makes setting up your own DNS server as simple as possible. iDNS uses the de facto standard DNS server, BIND, which comes installed on every Mac. The tool to configure this DNS server is not included by Apple on standard Mac OS X installations, only Mac OS X Server. But what if you don't want to buy Apple's expensive Server operating system just for a DNS server? This is the beauty of iDNS!
The best thing about iDNS is that if you have ever used Mac OS X Server, you already know how to use iDNS. iDNS uses the same interface as Server Admin for configuring DNS zones, making it easy for you to find help on setting up your DNS server.
- WARNING -
Do not use iDNS on Mac OS X Server. You will no longer be able to use Server Admin to configure your DNS server.
