Adding a domain key is quite simple. In this example, three domain keys will be added to the Ecessa device. The domain keys are listed below for the domain apple.example.                 TXT               o=~                        TXT                 o=~                              TXT              g=*; k=rsa; p=MFwwDQYJKoZIhvcNAQEBBQADSwAwSAJBALoqmxmBdt3D1CBe2fPj+9JoQMF4ECOrlVyGsnl+t1VrBVUvZTyNRrAt/6fcmQJL7rZ6ANTlgONQKz+7TnAmwc0CAwEAAQ==               

Go to Authoritative DNS and click Configure next to the domain that is to be configured.




In the domain configuration page, scroll to the bottom of the page for the TXT record section. Enter the domain keys. Please note that the Owner field is optional. Click Activate to save the changes.





Testing DNS resolution


To confirm the key is resolving properly, use the dig or nslookup utilities to query the Ecessa device or a public name server. For the following examples, the Ecessa device is getting queried to resolve the key1._domainkey record.

Using dig:

dig TXT

Using nslookup:

nslookup -type=txt
