ActivePerl (http://www.activestate.com/) and Strawberry Perl (http://www.strawberryperl.com) have both been tested and found to work. 2) OpenSSL (http://www.openssl.org) needs to be downloaded and built on the system on which you are building BIND. 3) If you wish to use the statistics channel, LibXML2 (ftp://xmlsoft.org/libxml2) needs to be downloaded and built on the system on which you are building BIND. (If you do not wish to use the statistics channel, remove HAVE_LIBXML2 from config.h.win32.) 4) If you want to build using Visual C++ 6.0, you'll need some extra files that are to be found in the Platform SDK (which you will need to install), namely: iphlpapi.h iptypes.h ipexport.h iphlpapi.lib You'll also need an updated Iprtrmib.h - using the VC++6.0 one will get you some compilation errors. You can just overwrite the old one if you're not using it for any purposes, and maybe keep a backup of it. You can copy the header files under VC98\INCLUDE and the library file under VC98\LIB. I think you can also put them in a separate directory and add it to the include search list, but I don't know if that can be made persistent. For building on VC++ 7.0 no extra files are required. The instructions assume a Visual C++ 6.0 compiler with Visual Studio and Visual Studio Service Pack 3 or later. It may build and work with earlier versions but it has not been tested. The binaries may be built and run on any of the following platforms: NT 4.0 Workstation (SP3 or later), NT 4.0 Server (SP3 or later), Windows 2000 Professional (SP1 or later), Windows 2000 Server or any kind (SP1 or later), Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server. It will NOT build or run on Windows 95, Windows 98, etc. platforms. Step 1: Download and build OpenSSL Download and untar the OpenSSL sources from http://www.openssl.org/. Extract them at in the same directory in which you extracted the BIND9 source: If BIND9 is in \build\bind-9.7.0, for instance, OpenSSL should be in \build\openssl-0.9.8l (subject to version number changes). Note: Building OpenSSL requires that you install Perl as it uses it during its build process. The following commands work as of openssl-0.9.8l, but you should check the OpenSSL distribution to see if the build instructions have changed: cd openssl-0.9.8l perl Configure VC-WIN32 --prefix=c:/openssl ms\do_masm nmake /f ms\ntdll.mak If you wish to use PKCS #11 to control a cryptographic hardware service module, please see bind9\README.pkcs11. You will need to apply the patch in bind9\bin\pkcs11\openssl-0.9.8l-patch (this can be done using the Cygwin 'patch' utility) and add --pk11-libname and --pk11-flavor to the Configure command above. Step 2: Download and build libxml2 Download and untar the libxml2 sources from ftp://xmlsoft.org/libxml2. Extract them at in the same directory in which you extracted the BIND9 source: If BIND9 is in \build\bind-9.7.0, for instance, libxml2 should be in \build\libxml2-2.7.3 (subject to version number changes). Now build libxml2, and copy the resulting files into the include and lib directories: cd libxml2-2.7.3\win32 cscript configure.js compiler=msvc vcmanifest=yes static=yes debug=no iconv=no nmake /f Makefile.msvc libxml Step 3: Building BIND You must build openssl and libxml2 first. From the command prompt cd to the win32utils directory under the BIND9 root: cd bind-9.7.0\win32utils If you wish to use PKCS #11 to control a cryptographic hardware service module, set the path to the PKCS #11 provider library: perl setpk11provider.pl <DLL path> If using VC++ 6.0, run the BuildAll.bat file: BuildAll This will do the following: 1) copy config.h.win32 to config.h in the root. 2) create the versions.h file in the root. 3) Build the gen application in the lib/dns directory. 4) Run the gen application and build the required lib/dns header files. 5) Create the Build/Release subdirectory under the root of the BIND source tree which will hold the binaries being built. 6) Build the libraries, named, application tools like dig, rndc dnssec tools, installer, checkconf and checkzones programs, BIND 9 Installer. 7) Copies the release notes and the OpenSSL DLL to the BUILD/Release directory. 8) Copies the BIND 9 ARM HTML files and the application HTML files to the Build\Release area. If you wish to use the Visual Studio GUI for building, you can just run the BuildSetup.bat file: BuildSetup This will create or find and copy into place several files which are necessary for the build to proceed. It also locates and copies into place the DLLs for OpenSSL and libxml2. Use BINDBuild.dsw (also located in the win32utils directory) to open the workspace for all of the BIND9 libraries and applications. Select "Build->Batch Build", click "Select All", then click "Build". After the build has completed, run the BuildPost.bat file: BuildPost ...which does post-build processing. Installation is accomplished by running the BINDInstall program. All DLL's are copied to the system32 area and all applications (including BINDInstall which may be necessary for uninstalling BIND 9) to the dns/bin directory. If BIND 8 has previously been installed on the system it must be uninstalled first by running it's own BINDInstall program. The BIND 9 installer does not yet do this. All bugs found, whether in the process of building the application or running BIND or the tools should be reported to the bind9 bugs email account at firstname.lastname@example.org.
