Thanks I didn't see that in any of my searches. That option sounds
promising as I could use it to point to a folder & then have a web app
write files to that folder to make the changes.

I wasn't set on using bind, but it was the only thing I had found so
far. Since we only have about 4 people on the network at this time
dnsmasq does sound like it would work for what we need.

Also since pfSense runs on FreeBSD I guess I could install it on to
the pfSense box if I can't get another computer to run it on.
