DNS Enabler allows Mac users to turn on a fully-functional Domain Name Server on a plain Mac OS X machine with just one click.

What's New

Version 4.0.5:
  • One cosmetic change - the question-mark icon for the new Dynamic DNS Update feature does not "stick" to its position when the window is re-sized. This has been fixed.
  • Also the Authorisation Key generated for DNS Agent now also contains the name of the DNS Server to allow DNS Agent to be pre-filled with the name of its home DNS Server when its Authorisation Key is installed.

DNS Enabler looks more robust than Leopard Server's standard DNS. The developer's site doesn't mention if DNS Enabler is compatible/recommended for deployment on Leopard Server. Has anyone done this?

I've been using DNS Enabler for over 4 years and can testify that it's rock solid. While you can find many references for configuring BIND, your actual requirements will always differ from those of the providers of the information. Thus, customization is extremely difficult and requires trial and error. DNS Enabler completely simplifies the process and allows ongoing edits with ease. For those who are complaining about the lack of a true demo, any savvy user could copy the BIND configuration files during the demo period - thus eliminating the need to purchase a license. For $15, the developer more than deserves to recoup some of his developments costs. If your network would benefit from managed DNS, this will be the best $15 bucks you've spent in a long time. Heck, if the developer comes here, I'll treat 'em to dinner and a few beers, too ;-)

Installed it on a machine around two years ago. Never again watched at it, the setup it made daily serves around 40 clients. If you nedd a quick, no headache and zero maintenance solution, you can buy it without regrets. DNS made easy.

By not providing a demo version the author is unfortunately, shooting himself in both feet

I appreciate the change from Shareware to Demo... but it's not a demo either. This is commercial. Despite being able to download, you can't try the software without purchasing a key.

Requires a serial number to run. There is no demo mode or demo serial number, therefore "buy before you try."
