attbi port blockage (DNS & attbi)

I thought I remembered an announcement on the mod_perl list that would be 

What is DnsZone?
DnsZone is a fully functional application for Apache/mod_perl.
It implements a web based interface for managing zones with a nameserver 
running BIND

How does it work?
It uses the features of RFC2136 (Dynamic Updates) to maintain the zones in 
a nameserver running BIND. This means that it does not need to have 
anything running on the actual nameserver other than BIND itself.

DnsZone allows users to change their own zones without actually having 
access to the nameserver on which their zone is located. It is a multiuser 
application where each user will have his/her own login and password. From 
the interface you can add, update and delete individual records for the 
domain you are managing. Records are instantly updated in the nameserver 
and changes will be visible instantly. Currently only MySQL is supported as 
the backend database, but as soon as time (or contributions) permits 
DnsZone will have support for a larger amount of databases. Types of dns 
records currently supported: SOA, A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, NS, PTR, and TXT. The 
user interface supports multiple languages and currently comes with 
English, Danish, German, Swedish, Italian, Portuguese Brazilian, and French 
language files. The interface can be tailored to fit your needs by the use 
of templates.

Hope this helps.
