Tips and tricks

Running together with BIND9

iodined must be started with "-p 5353" since 53/udp is used by BIND

and BIND must be configured to forward requests:

zone "" {

type forward; forwarders{ port 5353;



Running on another port

If your port 53 is taken on a specific interface by an application that does not use it, use -p on iodined to specify an alternate port (like -p 5353) and use for instance iptables (on Linux) to forward the traffic:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p udp --dport 53 -j DNAT --to :5353
