You would have a few options to do that.

I wrote a blogpost about implementing BIND views using dnsdist and two instances of powerdns-auth. See https://www.frank.be/implementing-bind-views-with-powerdns/ <https://www.frank.be/implementing-bind-views-with-powerdns/> for details.

If you want to keep a single BIND as a backend, you could investigate EDNS client subnet support.

There are other options, but the two above would my preferred way...

Kind Regards,

Now BIND DNS is seeing the dnsdist as the client IP and the views are no more valid. We are unable to figure out how we can we create same type of views on the dnsdist application. Any help would be appreciated.
