Change to the TinyDNS root dir:
Create a dir named for the IP of DNS zone master server:
cd into that dir:
Touch a file for each domain name to be slaved, axfr.$DOMAINNAME:
touch axfr.example.com touch axfr.example.org
Go up to the root and run the slaver; it's a perl script written by Russ Nelson that looks for dirs named for masters' IP addresses with files named axfr.* in them and pull from the address the named domain:
The -D shows you what it's doing. This can be slow depending on the response time of ALL the masters it's querying. I don't know of a way to tell it to slave only one zone.
This is the same thing as cron runs to slave periodically:
55 * * * * /usr/bin/cd /var/service/tinydns/root && env PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin /usr/local/bin/axfr.pl
It does not respond to signals from the master to pull records. DJB doesn't believe in this complexity and would prefer slaves to pull from masters using simple scp or rsync instead of inventing new protocols.
