BIND is the most common DNS server on the internet. It does not handle arbitrary record types, so you must be sure to use a version that supports AAAA records to resolve your host names to IPv6 addresses.

Quick Config Example

Use 'named -6' to experiment with IPv6 only if desired

A quick summary of the interesting IPv6 specific options:

options {
        // control interface from which queries are sent
        query-source-v6 2001:DB8:1:1:1:1:1:2 port 1053;
        // control interface from which notifies are sent
        notify-source-v6 2001:DB8:1:1:1:1:1:2 port 1052;
        // listen on the loopback
        listen-on-v6 {::1;};
        // listen on specific other interface (defaults to all interfaces otherwise)
        listen-on-v6 {2001:DB8:1:1:1:1:1:2;};
