VinylDNS provides the ability to specify two different connections to the backend DNS servers.
- The primary connection is used for issuing DNS updates
- The transfer connection is used for syncing DNS data with VinylDNS
If you do not have any keys, then you can leave this information empty. VinylDNS will assume a set of default keys that should provide the access VinylDNS needs to manage your zone.
If you have an existing TSIG key that you are using for issuing DDNS updates to DNS, and you wish to continue to use it, you must request that your zone be setup to allow transfers from VinylDNS. Note: If you make any changes outside of VinylDNS they will not be reflected in VinylDNS unless you manually sync the zone.
If you have an existing TSIG key that you are using for issuing DDNS updates, and you no longer need the key, please contact your VinylDNS administrators to ensure that the key is revoked and the zone is setup with the default VinylDNS TSIG key. Once your key is revoked, you can leave the connections empty in which case VinylDNS will assume the default keys and they should work.
