DNS trouble with Dial-in PPP.


Hey all,


I'm trying to get my dial-in PPP connection working, and I'm having trouble with the DNS part.

I can successfully get my modem to answer the phone and negotiate the PPP, but I can't get the server to answer DNS requests from the dial-in client correctly.

I can view pages on the client through strict IP addresses, so I know that IP forwarding is working, but the dial-in client cannot get names resolved.

DNS to upstream works alright from server, just not from client.


Anyone have experience with DNS servers? How do I setup a "caching DNS server" on my dial-in. I've gotten too far to give up now. I've printed out/read all the docs on the web about DNS and PPP, I just can't get it all to work!


Help,

Danny

I've never set it up myself, but I believe it's a simple as installing the "bind" rpm and the "caching-nameserver" rpm then start "named".

Thanks SixPax,

thanks for the quick response. I'm at work right now, and tommorrow, I'll bring in the infamous "linux notebook" where I keep my experiments.

Yeah, I've manually started named on my box, but there was no effect.

I'm assuming that I did something wrong though....

I some rough info in some of the O'Reilly books on both "network administration" and "PPP" but neither of them go into enough detail to help me.

Did you install the "caching-nameserver" package? I believe that will do what you want because it gives you preconfigured versions of the following files:

/etc/named.boot
/etc/named.conf
/var/named/named.ca
/var/named/named.local

It's not part of the normal bind/named fileset.
