FTP Software is selling a domain name server that runs on a PC under DOS.
We've ordered a copy, but the paperwork is still in progress. Therefore
I have no experience to report.

Wollongong does have name server support in their VMS product. Someone
here is bringing up one of that flavor.

We are very interested in the PC option, as we would like to distribute
the responsibility for name service out to our subdomains.
