Install djbdns on Raspberry Pi
djbdns is a small, fast, and secure DNS server. Perfect for low resource systems. I also find it easier to configure than BIND (once you understand how).I start with a raspbian image from http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads
Install some packages that D. J. Bernstein says that we need.
apt-get install ucspi-tcp apt-get install daemontools
Don't install tinydns. It includes a pop3 server.
Install djbdns following http://cr.yp.to/djbdns/install.html
Create some users and groups that we will need for executing the dnscache and multilog.
useradd svclog useradd dnscache
Create the /etc/dnscache folder structure
dnscache-conf dnscache svclog /etc/dnscache
Setup /service directory, svscan looks at this directory to see which services to run.
mkdir /service ln -s /etc/dnscache /service/dnscache
Add the following to /etc/rc.local so that the supervised services start on boot.
svscanboot also needs the following link to function correctly.
ln -s /service/ /etc/service
Optional ThingsUpdate /etc/dnscache/env/IP to contain the ip address to listen on. Also create a file entries in /etc/dnscache/root/ip to specify the networks that the dns server should reply to.
Edit /etc/dnscache/log/run adding s52428800 before ./main to set the log size to 50MB.
It should look something like
exec setuidgid svclog multilog t s52428800 ./main
You should update the root server list
wget http://www.internic.net/zones/named.root -O - | grep ' A ' | tr -s ' ' | cut -d ' ' -f4 > /etc/dnscache/root/servers/\@
Update /etc/resolv.conf to use your new dns server.
It is also a good idea to apply some cname patches. http://homepage.ntlworld.com/jonathan.deboynepollard/Softwares/djbdns/#dnscache-cname-handling
Change UDP packet size to accommodate big UDP packets. Many DNS servers require large UDP packets or djbdnscache will fail with drop # input / output errors. https://dev.openwrt.org/browser/packages/net/djbdns/patches/060-dnscache-big-udp-packets.patch
