For those of you who operate DNS services using Daniel J. Bernstein’s famous djbdns, autoaxfr “lets you emulate the functionality of bind’s type slave zones with a masters list of IP addresses”.

If your server has multiple IP addresses, then you need to way to specify one of those addresses for outgoing connections or use the default one. To address this I had to create a small patch:


Debian GNU/Linux contains a command line based FTP client, which has been enhanced to understand the AUTH SSL command. This is a good thing, but AUTH SSL has been superseded by AUTH TLS. At least one server, pure-ftpd, only understands the latter, because it does not support encrypted data transfers (which is mandatory for AUTH SSL), but only encrypted control connections. This patch adds AUTH TLS to ftp-ssl.
