Mainsh – I haven’t done any experimenting with DOT, but there’s a guide for configuring DOH at the following page. It requires BIND 9.17.10 or higher (DOH isn’t being backported to BIND 9.16):

Walter – I’m not sure why you’d say DOH/DOT is dead and to instead use DNSSEC. DOH/DOT and DNSSEC are two completely different things meant for two completely different DNS functions – there is no overlap.

Hi Team,

I am using BIND 9.11.3-1ubuntu1.12-Ubuntu version for my BIND and planning to use ISC PPA and use 9.16.16.

So my queries are

  1.  Is DOH/DOT officially supported now?
  2.  And how do I DOH forwarding in my BIND configuration?

DOH/DOT is dead;

use DNSSEC instead and no troubles;
