Debian – Installing dig on Debian


I've tried installing dig on Debian, but the apt-get utility doesn't seem to know what it is.

Is it part of some larger set of packages? Where can I find this?

Best Answer

On Ubuntu it's in dnsutils. It's the same in Debian.

Install it with:

apt-get install -y dnsutils

apt-file lets you search for files in packages even if they aren't installed.
