HINFO-Records (Host information)

A HINFO-record specifies the host / server's type of CPU and operating system.

This information can be used by application protocols such as FTP, which use special procedures when communicating with computers of a known CPU and operating system type.

Standard CPU and operating system types are defined in RFC1700 (Page 206 / 214).

The standard for a Windows PC is "INTEL-386" / "WIN32".

To create a new HINFO-record, right-click a zone in the left list in the DNS Records window, and select "Other new record" from the pop-up menu.

This record type is defined in RFC1035.
