Hi all,

Thanks to Lars I have come up with the following (to upgrade BIND for the 
DNS caching issue)...(short of updateing all source).

Download the latest port BIND95.9.5.x (p2 I think),

Extract it to the ports directory,

make install
make clean

Is the above correct?


Will the installation leave all my current (BIND) configs alone?
