ldns-notify - notify DNS servers that updates are available

ldns-notify [options] -z zone servers

ldns-notify sends a NOTIFY message to DNS servers. This tells them that an updated zone is available at the master servers. It can perform TSIG signatures and it can add a SOA serial number of the updated zone. If a server already has that serial number it will disregard the message.

The zone that is updated.
Source IP to send query from.
Show usage and exit
Show the version and exit
Append a SOA record indicating the serial number of the updated zone.
Use port as destination port (default the DNS port 53) for the UDP packets.
Use the given TSIG key and base64-data, and optionally an algorithm to sign the NOTIFY. The algorithm defaults to hmac-md5.sig-alg.reg.int.
Print verbose debug information. The query that is sent and the query that is received.
Specify the maximum number of retries before notify gives up trying to send the UDP packet.

The program exits with a 0 exit code if all servers replied an acknowledgement to the notify message, and a failure exit code otherwise.

Written by the ldns team as an example for ldns usage.
