pdnsd is a proxy DNS daemon with permanent (disk-)cache and the ability
to serve local records. It is designed to detect network outages or hangups
and to prevent DNS-dependent applications like Netscape Navigator from hanging.
The original author of pdnsd is Thomas Moestl, but pdnsd is no longer maintained
by him. This is an extensively revised version by Paul A. Rombouts.
For a description of the changes see http://members.home.nl/p.a.rombouts/pdnsd.html
and the file README.par in /usr/share/doc/pdnsd-1.2.9a
This package was built for a RedHat distribution.
It's possible to rebuild the source RPM with isdn support using the rpmbuild option:
--with isdn
It's possible to rebuild the source RPM with ipv6 support using the rpmbuild option:
--with ipv6
