B. Compiling and Installing BIND on a Sun

The version of BIND shipped with Solaris 2.6 is based on the 4.9.3 release of BIND  - a tad stale. Earlier versions of Solaris 2 include a BIND based on 4.8.3, which is downright ripe. For those of you who can't wait until Solaris ships with a version of BIND 8, compiling BIND from the sources on a Sun is relatively easy, because Solaris is based on BSD UNIX , and BIND was originally written for BSD UNIX . Here are instructions on how to compile and install 8.1.2 BIND on your Solaris 2.X host.

B.1 Get the Source Code

First, you've got to get the source code. There's a copy on ftp.isc.org , available for anonymous ftp :

% 

cd /tmp


% 

ftp ftp.isc.org.
