Episode 5

In this episode, Matt and Cricket discuss and debate DNS terminology, explaining resolvers (stub resolvers, iterative resolvers), name servers (recursive name servers, authoritative name servers); they ruminate on how much of name server design is undocumented lore; and make many, many insider references.  Oh, and then they remember the name and purpose of the podcast and answer a listener’s questions about lame delegations, revealing a rift between Matt’s and Cricket’s philosophies about them.

  1. Amazing. I’ve just discovered the feed and am an avid listener now. Watch out NPR. Whatever happened to the written archives? I’ve been looking to see if my current problem has already been solved. Claudine.
