General Meeting

DNS Administration

Mike Beirne

Tuesday, July 25, 7:00-9:00 pm
College of DuPage Room K-161


DNS is the method used on the Internet to translate names to IP addresses and from IP addresses to names. Setting up and maintaining DNS is vital to the reliability of any network connected to the Internet. Correct procedures and an understanding of the theory behind how it works will make it much easier to maintain and to debug problems.
