SUMMARY: DNS question

From: Jeff Kennedy (
Date: Tue Jun 20 2000 - 13:01:55 CDT

I did need something newer, and I also needed to look at the website and
not just the ftp site. On the web site under BIND and 8.2.2p5 there is
a link for the source as well the contrib and the docs. I only got the
source from the ftp site, not the contrib. I thought contrib was under
the source tree.
