Good Evening Sir,
                           Myself V.BIDHUNESH from JAYA ENGINEERING COLLEGE
THIRUNINDRAVUR, I'm willing to take a Presentation on NSLOOKUP tool and a
live demo about the tool. I need a 30 mins time to demonstarte the tool.
Hoping for a good reply.


IIRC, nslookup was going to be deprecated (circa 2000) [a] but
according to this BIND release notes [b], ISC does not plan to
deprecate it.

Some of us have stopped using it completely and switched to 'dig' and
'host' with honourable mention of 'getent host' for listings in your
local /etc/hosts file.

I suggest you include the above in your presentation/talk and also
cover aspects of how the kernel DNS resolver works (nsswitch.conf).

[b] <https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-00496/0/BIND-9.9.0a3-Release-Notes.htm>
 see item no. 1700.

Best,
