My latest article Build your own DNS name server on Linux, has been posted on Opensource.com. This is the second article in my series on DNS name services.

Published yesterday, April 6, Introduction to the Domain Name System (DNS), talks about how name services work on both the client and server side, and lists some of the more common DNS records and their uses.

You may also be interested in some of my other articles about networking. The following list of articles are posted on my Linux-DataBook website, and may also be posted on Opensource.com.

The following articles are currently posted only on Opensource.com as of April 7, 2017.

For a number of reasons, I am closing down the business entity known as Millennium Technology Consulting LLC effective immediately.

I will continue to maintain my DataBook® web site, where I post technical information for Linux system administrators and end users. If you are looking for help with Linux and other Free Open Source Software (FOSS), I post information here that – for me at least – was difficult to find or that took me a lot of time to discover through experimentation.

Because that business subsidised the operation of this web site, that source of financial support is no longer available. So, if you find this web site useful, I ask you to consider supporting it by donating so that it may continue to exist.

Thank you.

I have started a new DataBook® web site.

This new web site will be primarily targeted to Linux. I am writing two new books, The DataBook for Linux Administrators and the DataBook for Linux Users.

These two books are compendia of data about Linux, particularly about Fedora Linux, for Administrators and users, respectively. They contain information that I have discovered over the several years I have been using Linux and that I need to maintain for myself, but I also want to make this infomration available to all comers.

Although the entire book Databook for OS/2 has been lost, I will try to recreate it as time permits. I expect this to be a long and tedious process, so don’t look for much progress any time soon.
