I'm trying to set up APE server on my local system. I'm using Ubuntu and BIND and I need to set up a catch-all CNAME record.

What would be required for this?

Set up a zone for your domain in named.conf.local and create the zone file with the basics, if you haven't already.

In the zone file, you want something like this:

*  IN  CNAME  whereever.it.needs.to.point.com.
  • And you need the A resource-record for the CNAME to point at.
