About the Author

Paul Albitz is a software engineer at Hewlett-Packard. Paul earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin, LaCrosse, and a Master of Science degree from Purdue University.

Paul worked on BIND for the HP-UX 7.0 and 8.0 releases. During this time he developed the tools used to run the hp.com domain. Since then Paul has worked on various HP products during his 19 year career: HP JetDirect software, HP OfficeJet fax firmware, HPPhoto web site, and HP Photosmart Premier software.

Paul and his wife Katherine live in San Diego California with their two cats, Gracie and Tiffany.



Matt Larson started Acme Byte & Wire, a company specializing in DNS consulting and training, with Cricket Liu in January 1997. Previously, he worked for Hewlett-Packard, first as Cricket's successor as hp.com hostmaster, then as a consultant in HP's Professional Services Organization. Matt graduated from Northwestern University in 1992 with two degrees: a bachelor of arts in computer science and a bachelor of music in church music/organ performance. He lives in Bethesda, Maryland, with his wife, Sonja Kahler, and their two pugs. In his spare time he enjoys playing the 10-rank pipe organ in his house and flying light airplanes. Cricket worked for five and a half years at Hewlett-Packard's Corporate Network Services, where he ran hp.com, one of the largest corporate domains in the world, and helped design the HP Internet's security architecture. Cricket left HP in 1997 to start his own company, Acme Byte & Wire, with his friend and co-author Matt Larson. Network Solutions acquired Acme Byte & Wire in June of 2000, and then subsequently, Network Solutions merged with VeriSign. Cricket became Director of DNS Product Management of the merged company, helping determine which new DNS-related products VeriSign would offer.



Cricket Liu matriculated at the University of California's Berkeley campus, that great bastion of free speech, unencumbered Unix, and cheap pizza. He joined Hewlett-Packard after graduation and worked for HP for nine years. Cricket began managing the hp.com zone after the Loma Prieta earthquake forcibly transferred the zone's management from HP Labs to HP's Corporate Offices (by cracking a sprinkler main and flooding Labs' computer room). Cricket was hostmaster@hp.com for over three years, and then joined HP's Professional Services Organization to cofound HP's Internet Consulting Program. Cricket left HP in 1997 to form Acme Byte & Wire, a DNS consulting and training company, with his friend (and now co-author) Matt Larson. Network Solutions acquired Acme in June 2000, and later the same day merged with VeriSign. Cricket worked for a year as Director of DNS Product Management for VeriSign Global Registry Services. Cricket joined Men & Mice, an Icelandic company specializing in DNS software and services, in September, 2001. He is currently their Vice President, Research & Development. Cricket, his wife, Paige, and their son, Walt, live in Colorado with two Siberian Huskies, Annie and Dakota. On warm weekend afternoons, you'll probably find them on the flying trapeze or wakeboarding behind Betty Blue.

This is the best DNS book I have read to date for supporting Windows 2000 DNS.
Jose Medeiros
I found this book to be very useful and a 'must have' for anyone wanting to run a DNS server on an Windows NT 4.0 Server.
Todd Walters
I can control my DNS and don't wait for busy ISP's DNS to answer my quiries so it is much faster.

I am an MCSE but after one year of hard study, I didn't konw how - or even is it possible - to build and run my local DNS on my home network to resolve internet domain names of the internet in a professional manner like an ISP. I started to read this book without any idea how I can achieve this ghosty task, and after reading 4 chapters I discovered that I am very near to act as any professional ISP does. Before even finishing chapter 5, I picked up the book, started to follow the instructions, configured my proxy server to use the local DNS server I just built instead of my ISP DNS, conected to the internet using dialup, and test it. and then -you guess- it works ! what a surprise. I can control my DNS and don't wait for busy ISP's DNS to answer my quiries so it is much faster. Now I am fine tunning the server to obtain the maximum benefits from it. Although the book language is somewhat not so easy for non native english speakers, but it is OK. Many Thanks to the Editors, Authors and Amazon.com for the great work.

Being somewhat new to running a DNS server on the Win/NT platform, I thought a new book would be helpful. I found this book to be very useful and a 'must have' for anyone wanting to run a DNS server on an Windows NT 4.0 Server. The book is kind of broke into 3 sections; Chapters 1 - 2 talks about DNS theory, Chapters 3 - 10 how to set-up and maintain your own domain, Chapters 11 - 13 common problems and troubleshooting. I will keep this book forever like all of my O'Reilly books, and use it as a reference tool. Probably the best documentation you can find on Win/NT and DNS, and why not use it, its free and comes with Win/NT 4.0....

This book is straightforward yet concise. I had no experience whatsoever with DNS before purchasing this book and now have all my DNS servers up and running with no problems. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who needs to set up a DNS Server on NT fast and effictively.

More than I ever wanted to know about DNS! I purchased this book in preparation for Win2K Active Directory and DDNS- anyone planning a companies name space needs to have a thorough understanding of DNS. In the absence of a Win2K DDNS guide book I read DNS on Windows NT and it was worth the time. Chapter 4 is all you need to setup a NT 4.0 DNS server, but the book goes way beyond the basics. It thoroughly covers subdomains, advanced features, troubleshooting and nslookup. Also, if you never really understood the in-addr.arpa domain, you will after this book. With the knowledge gained from this book, I know I am better prepared for DDNS and Active Directory.

Format: Paperback
I am a technology consultant and find it very hard to find books which answer what I consider obvious questions on a topic. This book is not like that and goes into tedious details about how name resolution works and in an NT environment. I've bought dozens of technology books over the last few years but I had to give a review on this one. A must have for anyone new or experienced with DNS or Windows NT.

Format: Paperback
With the exception of a few typo's and mixed up images, this proved to be a strong and useful summary of how to integrate MS-DNS in an NT environment. Coverage of WINS and DHCP rounded out a text that is perfectly targeted at the NT OS, without all the UNIX overtones of other works. Making it more useful is its easy of reading, and appendices.
