Lightweight resolver daemon


lwresd [options...]

Runs on:

QNX Neutrino


The lwresd utility is the daemon providing name-lookup services to clients that use the BIND 9 lightweight resolver library. It is part of BIND DNS server software. It's essentially a stripped-down, caching-only name server that answers queries using the BIND 9 lightweight resolver protocol rather than the DNS protocol.

This program uses the OpenSSL library for cryptography services.

For more information, use the -v option to check the current version first, and then find the corresponding BIND Administrator Reference Manual at: https://kb.isc.org/docs/aa-01493
