Facilitating the task of DNS administration, Men & Mice has utilized its expert background in DNS software development and provided a diagnostic utility that maximizes the reliability of DNS server administration while minimizing administration time. DNS Expert offers fast and comprehensive error tracking and provides easy-to-understand solutions to complex DNS problems. DNS Expert analyzes DNS records on all DNS servers for Unix, NT, Mac OS or any other operating system.

Says Cricket Liu, co-author of the O'Reilly & Associates Handbook "DNS & BIND" after beta testing DNS Expert: "Congratulations on putting together a great product! I won't hesitate to recommend this to my customers."

DNS Expert, for Windows 95/98 and NT, is available now for $295 from Men & Mice. A demo version of DNS Expert is available for download at: A Mac OS version will be available shortly.

Ultimate DNS reliability through comprehensive error tracking

ISPs can now enjoy ultimate reliability and ease of use during the DNS administration process, whether in getting a health check on their DNS setup or responding to immediate network problems. DNS Expert can systematically error-check and validate any part of the DNS setup. DNS Expert also provides an easy path to quick DNS problem identification by locating problems and providing easy-to-understand solutions to even the most complex DNS problems.

"I have used DNS Expert to analyze all of the zones which we host," says Jim Evans at InterNet Access Network, an Ohio Dayton Area ISP. "DNS Expert has very quickly and efficiently given me the information I need to clean up my zone files. I am very impressed and I feel that anyone that must deal with DNS should have a copy of this utility and I certainly will recommend it to anyone that I know."

The analysis performed by DNS Expert includes checking the availability of backup mail- and DNS service for domains, the general domain sanity, and the connection to parent domains. Says Sigurdur Ragnarsson, DNS Expert product manager: "DNS Expert performs over 50 different checks, practically all the tests that can be made to a DNS server. These tests surpass any tests done on DNS servers today."

Essential diagnostic companion for both new and experienced administrators

Manual DNS error tracking and validation of DNS records is often very time consuming, even for the most experienced administrator. Errors in DNS records are easily overlooked and checks can be left out in the course of the validation process. A survey recently conducted on approximately 1200 Internet domains revealed that over 60% had erroneous setup. With DNS Expert, new and experienced administrators are provided with the means of easily and systematically checking every aspect of DNS, ensuring a correct setup while minimizing the administration effort.
