How Webmin can ease DNS management

Working for an Australian ISP in the mid-1990s, Jamie Cameron was swamped with users' DNS record-change requests. Surely, he thought, there has to be a better way to handle DNS changes than editing BIND configuration files. With that thought and a couple of years' work, Melbourne, Australia-based Cameron came up with Webmin, a program that can simplify Unix or Linux management. Webmin can help IT managers make quick work of daily chores like creating Apache virtual hosts or DNS zones, Cameron said. In this interview, he offers an introduction to Webmin and describes some ways to use it in enterprise settings. For an in-depth look at Webmin's workings, Cameron offers a new book, Managing Linux Systems with Webmin, which is part of Bruce Perens' open-source series from Prentice Hall PTR.
