SYNOPSIS

gnunet-dns2gns [options]

DESCRIPTION

Most users will not want to run an DNS to GADS proxy/gateway and thus will not need this program.

gnunet-dns2gns runs a DNS resolver which delegates requests to the ".gads" and ".zkey" zones to GADS. All other requests are forwarded to DNS. This DNS proxy is useful for enabling non-personalized GADS-resolution to an entire network or to offer GADS-resolution to DNS users.

A DNS-to-GNS proxy using gnunet-dns2gns is available at ".zkey.eu"

If you do not want to specify a public key and are the owner of the zone that gnunet-dns2gns will use for GNS lookups, you need to first create a pseudonym (using "gnunet-identity -C NAME"), and then assign it to be used for the "dns2gns" service using "gnunet-identity -e NAME -s dns2gns". After that, you can start the dns2gns service (possibly using gnunet-arm) without specifying a public key using "-z".

OPTIONS

-c FILENAME, --config=FILENAME Use the configuration file FILENAME.
-d IP, --dns=IP IP address of a recursive DNS resolver that should be used for non-GADS hostnames.
-f NAME, --fcfs=NAME Authoritative FCFS suffix to use. This is the name under which the local zone’s names will be made available. Default is "fcfs.zkey.eu".
-h, --help Print short help on options.
-L LOGLEVEL, --loglevel=LOGLEVEL Use LOGLEVEL for logging. Valid values are DEBUG, INFO, WARNING and ERROR.
-s SUFFIX, --suffix=SUFFIX Authoritative DNS suffix to use. This is the name under which the GADS ".zkey" zone is mapped into the DNS namespace. Default is "zkey.eu".
-v, --version Print GNUnet version number.
-z PUBLICKEY, --zone=PUBLICKEY Use PUBLICKEY for the zone to resolve GNS names in. The PUBLICKEY must be encoded in the text format which can be obtained using gnunet-ecc, seen in PKEY records and output by gnunet-identity. If this option is not specified, the default ego associated by gnunet-identity for the "dns2gns" subsystem will be used.
