Running your own dns cache on Debian (with djbdns)

Run as root:

aptitude install djbdns dnscache-run
mv /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf.orig
echo nameserver 127.0.0.1 > /etc/resolv.conf

Then configure your connection to not update /etc/resolv.conf upon each connection (I use pppoe to connect to adsl, so I needed to comment the line “usepeerdns” on /etc/ppp/peers/dsl-provider)

Straightforward, isn’t it? For other operating systems, see the official tutorial.
