rndc: connection to remote host closed.

I'm using fedora core 1 and tying to set up DNS. When trying to start named I get the following message:-
rndc: connection to remote host closed. This may indicate that the remote server is using an older version of the command protocol, this host is not authorized to connect, or the key is invalid.

I read this in another forum


pico /etc/named.conf

Near the top of that file there are two entries that say rndc-key or rndckey

find the one with a dash and remove the dash so it's all one word then....

service named restart

That'll fix it"

Where is /scripts/fixndc? Or has anybody got any ideas!!!!
