We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.
DNS in the Enterprise
It's often been said that DNS is the phonebook of the Internet, but it's muuch more than that. David Wood will explain how to setup Bind 9 as a master DNS server to host multiple zones and reverse zones. Slave server configuration will also be explained as well as cache-only and forwarders. David will also detail how to configure Bind for each case and how to secure the configuration.
David is a Technical Account Manager at Red Hat. He spent years as a Red Hat Consultant and worked in the defense industry. He maintained infrastructure servers including DNS, Web, Proxy, and LDAP for over 5 years with a focus on Linux/Unix security.
Tarsnap (www.tarsnap.com) bills itself as "online backup for the truly paranoid." Tarsnap's deduplication lets you compress your backups by a factor of hundreds or thousands to one, and the client-side encryption means that the service cannot leak your data even if they want to. All this gets wrapped up in a familiar tar(1) interface, in a service priced in picodollars per gigabyte.
Bio: Michael W. Lucas is a critically-acclaimed author from Detroit, Michigan. He’s the “writes books” sort of author, not the “hire him to write your stuff” author.

Plus we'll have our usual features: Jobs Looking for People, People Looking for Jobs, news, discussion, and much much more. We also meet at Re Lobster after the meeting for a late-dinner.
Hope to see you there!
