Feature Request: DNS package

Sun Jan 25, 2015 1:25 pm

It would be nice and useful to have fully functional DNS server as additional package like NTP server.
Example of expected function:
  • ip address / interface binding
  • definition of zones
  • master / slave function
  • more type of records (PTR, MX, SRV, TXT, etc.)
  • zone / conditional forwarding
  • support for dynamic registration from dhcp
  • DNSSEC
Fully functional DNS could be very useful for example in branch office routers.
Generally, I apologise for my weak english.

Would be perfect!
Would make MKT the best branch office router/firewall/VPN device there is.

Keep dreaming. I mean, I'm not against it, but it doesn't seem to me that MikroTik has resources to develop something like that. If they took some existing DNS server (there are not so many of them) and just added an admin interface for it, maybe. DNS server with WinBox-like admin interface is one of my wild dreams for a long time. But I'm under impression that MikroTik likes to implement their own stuff (I guess because the usual GPL does not go too well with closed-source RouterOS) and full-featured DNS server is not small task.

to Sob:
I'm talking about implementing of existing linux DNS server application such as Bind to RoS package. Not developing own solution / application.

I disagree with your opinion. What about DHCP server, NTP server, VPN server, CAPsMAN? They are 'server' too and they are present in RoS. I don't want make DNS server (for IPS) from Mikrotik, I can use Mikrotik as local DNS server in small branch office with zone forwarding / synchronizing. SMB routers of other vendors often have simple DNS zone management, why not Mikrotik?

I disagree also. And lazyness has nothing to do with it.

I'm pretty sure they can't just implement existing linux DNS server (Bind for example) for licensing reasons. RouterOS is not an open source product.

That is not correct.
Looking at http://www.mikrotik.com/downloadterms.html - they incorporate GPL'ed software and provide source-code of the included GPL'ed software

I would also like to see more features in DNS such as other types of static entrys besides A (such as txt, srv, etc)

If you need just few other record types, you don't really need full-featured DNS server.

You'd have better chances requesting only a little extension of current DNS cache. In fact, it's almost done. It can already handle some static record types, which is the big part (difference between no and some support). If it can do three (A/AAAA/PTR), adding fourth, fifth, and so on can't be too hard, can it? Coupled with per-domain forwarding (yep, that request is from 2008...), I'm sure that could satisfy a lot of those who want "more DNS" (probably not original poster of this thread).

Full featured DNS server would be nice too and I'd surely find a use for it, but seeing how even much simple things are not done...
