+If you do not want to specify a public key and are the owner of the zone that gnunet\-dns2gns will use for GNS lookups, you need to first create a pseudonym (using "gnunet\-identity \-C NAME"), and then assign it to be used for the "dns2gns" service using "gnunet\-identity \-e NAME \-s dns2gns". After that, you can start the dns2gns service (possibly using gnunet\-arm) without specifying a public key using "\-z".
