    Does tomato use an internal dns/bind server..

    Or does it rely soley on dns masquerading ?

    The reason why im asking, is i would like to define my own dns zone files.

    dnsmasq. A nifty little busybox type app.

    It doubles as the DHCP server too, which is pretty cool.

    yeah, but it doesnt support bind9, domain files.

    thats why i asked.. its limited to a custom host file... which is far from what im looking for.

    OK, no, it doesn't use an internal dns/bind server, and no, it does not rely solely on DNS masquarading.

    I guess if you want to run bind on it, you could probably compile it, and run it via a CIFS mount from another machine. Then again, if you have another (proper) machine running somewhere on your net, you might as well run bind on that.

    My bind 9 server uses over 2MB RAM. Add to that about 1.6MB for DHCPd, gives you just short of 4MB. dnsmasq uses just over 400kB.
