tinydns-conf acct logacct D ip
tinydns-conf creates a service directory D that runs tinydns. The name D must start with a slash and must not contain any special characters. Normally D is /etc/tinydns.
You can run the service under svscan by creating a symbolic link in the svscan directory:
ln -s D /serviceThe service will start within five seconds, and will be restarted upon reboot. You can use svc to control the service.
tinydns-conf arranges for tinydns to chroot to D/root and to run under the uid and gid of acct. The name acct must not contain any special characters.
tinydns-conf creates D/root/Makefile to run tinydns-data upon request.
tinydns-conf arranges for tinydns to listen for UDP packets on port 53 of ip, and to send outgoing packets from ip.
tinydns-conf creates an automatically rotated log directory in D/log/main. The logs are owned by logacct. The corresponding multilog processes run under the uid and gid of logacct. The name logacct must not contain any special characters.
