When implementing djbdns and dnscache on the Xicada.net network, I ran into a
situation which involved two dnscache services exchanging queries. Since
dnscache will not respond to non-recursive queries, and dnscache itself only
sends out non-recursive queries for zones in root/servers/*, a patch was
I merged IPv6 patches from: http://www.fefe.de/dns/
and the caches/servers patch from:
These patches cannot be applied separately.
This adds IPv6 support and instructs dnscache to search in root/servers/* for
zones to forward queries for recursively. root/servers/* will still be
processed, and the queries for those zones will be non-recursive.
If duplicate zones exist in both root/servers and root/caches, the
root/servers entry will override the root/caches entry.
I take no credit for this software, just merging the patches.
