DNS Server lingo/implementation -- Help!
First, thank you to whoever helps me. I don't post much in these forums but I'm trying to get back into linux before a college course next semester. I have looked over a lot of how to's, done some forum searching but the jargon is just stumping me.
If you know of a good how to that details what I'm looking for, I'd be happy to read it!
I'm trying to use debian (newest version, no options installed. Just a CLI. Network is up, I can access ftp via wu-ftpd) to set up for a home dns server. This server will be running some other servers as well, so it won't be going to waste.
I just want this DNS server to the first "stop" for DNS requests to speed up my dns queries. Have it cache a list and whenever it doesn't have a copy, request one from opendns and google dns.
I'm currently running pfsense as the router, can I get the same functionality from that? I know it has dns out of the box, but was just curious if it cached them for later use.
