Microsoft DNS Web Admin

Most if not all DNS servers have a web interface, why not Microsoft's DNS?

I decided to write one, just because I got tired from logging in to a server every time I wanted to change something, yes, I know about remote management, it wasn't an option for that particular case. time passed by and by the time I was almost done, the project was irrelevant, I did have some fun writing it though!

So here it is before you, mostly working, some parts don't, mostly tested. 


If you'd like to finish it, enjoy, its on github just for that.

Project contains two interesting libraries:

Heijden.DNS - for querying everything a DNS can tell you, including a trace.

DNSManagement - C# wrapper for WMI MicrosoftDNS namespace.

Unix to DateTime to Unix

If you need to convert from .NET DateTime to Unix datetime and back, here's how:

/// <summary>
/// Converts a unix datetime to C# DateTime
/// </summary>
/// <param name="unixTimeStamp"></param>
/// <returns></returns>
public static DateTime UnixTimeStampToDateTime(double unixTimeStamp)
    // Unix timestamp is seconds past epoch
    System.DateTime dtDateTime = new DateTime(1970, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, DateTimeKind.Utc);
    dtDateTime = dtDateTime.AddSeconds(unixTimeStamp).ToUniversalTime();
    return dtDateTime;

/// <summary>
/// Converts C# DateTime to unix datetime
/// </summary>
/// <param name="dateTime"></param>
/// <returns></returns>
public static double DateTimeToUnixTimestamp(DateTime dateTime)
    return (dateTime.ToUniversalTime() - new DateTime(1970, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, DateTimeKind.Utc).ToUniversalTime()).TotalSeconds;

From here.
