having problems getting the www to work with my domain name


Hi

i cant get the www part of my domain to work. i can type domain.com and reach the page but not the www-name-com.

I have the bind setup properly i think since i can reach the page just not sure what else i can do.

I have the alias setup as

alias=www
realname=name.com

I am running whitebox linux enterprise and new to the world of linux.

have a look at the dns-howto at www.tldp.org

afaik you'll have to put something like this in you db.your-domain-file:

"www A IP-Address-of-www-server"

so the resolver knows where to go for www.

sl mritch.
