IP Address and Host Name Translations? (DNS/BIND)

» close window

The Question is:

We run a single node on AXP/VMS.  We need to set up the IP services to
 recognize a DNS name and resolve it at another IP address.  We do NOT want to
 set up a DNS on the Alpha.  We do not have the manual for TCP/IP.
Thanks for your help.

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS documentation -- including the TCP/IP Services documentation,
  if that is the IP stack you are using -- is available via the URL website
  referenced in the OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
  You can choose to run DNS/BIND locally, or you can use a remote DNS/BIND
  server, or you can use the local static host name database.  Details on
  configuring DNS/BIND (if required) and on setting up the local static IP
  hostname database are included within the available TCP/IP Services
  management documentation.
