axfrdns - a DNS zone transfer server.


axfrdns [Options]


axfrdns is a zone transfer server.  It reads a zone transfer request in DNS-over-TCP format from its standard input and responds with a locally configured information. axfrdns looks up zone-transfer results in data.cdb, a binary file created by tinydns-data(1). It also responds to normal client queries such as SOA queries, which usually precede zone transfer requests.

axfrdns allows zone transfer for any zone listed in the $AXFR variable. AXFR is a slash separated list of domain names. If AXFR is not set, axfrdns allows zone transfer for all zone available in data.cdb.
