NAME
       yadifad - an authoritative Internet domain name server.

SYNOPSIS
       yadifad	[--config|-c  configfile] [--daemon|-d]	[-u uid] [-g gid] [-V]
       [-h]

DESCRIPTION
       yadifad is a Domain Name	System (DNS) server, part of the  YADIFA  dis-
       tribution  from	EURid  vzw/asbl.  The  latest version of YADIFA	can be
       found on:
			    http://www.yadifa.eu/download

       yadifad reads the zone files from yadifad.conf, and starts  up  an  au-
       thoritative name	server.	 It listens to UDP and TCP DNS queries and re-
       turns answers from its own database.

       yadifad knows the main DNS protocols:

       *      AXFR

       *      IXFR

       *      DNSSEC

       *      DNS Update

       *      NOTIFY

       yadifad works only with 1 CLASS:

       Class	   Value   Definition
       IN	   1	   (Internet class)
