basics of dns...


Hi,

i have named set up on a box, port 53 open, and my domain all configged. Its been 72+ hours since the nameservers were changed to the datacenters nameservers. The people at the datacenter added the domain to their nameservers and made it point to my servers ip address. so i thought all ive got to do is tell bind to accept the domain.... But this dosent want to happen for some reason. if you 'nslookup glookifree.com' it says dns server fail... which im guessing is my server. I cant see any faults in my config files, but to be sure i will post them:

/etc/named.conf
Code:
options {
        pid-file "/var/run/named/named.pid";
        directory "/var/named/";
        auth-nxdomain no;
        /*
         * If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
         * to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
         * directive below.  Previous versions of BIND always asked
         * questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 uses an unprivileged
         * port by default.
         */
        // query-source address * port 53;
};

//
// a caching only nameserver config
//
zone "." {
        type hint;
        file "named.ca";
};

zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" {
        type master;
        file "named.local";
};

zone "171.41.69.in-addr.arpa" {
        type master;
        file "pri.171.41.69.in-addr.arpa";
};


zone "glookifree.com" {
        type master;
        file "pri.glookifree.com";
};
/var/named/pri.glookifree.com
Code:
$TTL 30
@       IN      SOA     ns1.800hosting.com. admin.glookifree.com. (
                        2005090304       ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
                        14400              ; refresh, seconds
                        7200              ; retry, seconds
                        3600000              ; expire, seconds
                        86400 )            ; minimum, seconds

glookifree.com. IN NS ns1.800hosting.com.
glookifree.com. IN NS ns2.800hosting.com.

glookifree.com. IN A 69.41.171.229

localhost.glookifree.com. IN MX 0 127.0.0.1

glookifree.com. IN MX 0 glookifree.com.

mail IN CNAME glookifree.com.
www IN CNAME glookifree.com.
ftp IN A 69.41.171.229
As i said, i think the nameservers at 800hosting.com, the datacenter where the server is, is pointing the requests to my server fine... its just my server dosent seem to be processing the requests.... Ive made sure bind is started, and thats all up and ok...

Do the files look ok?

Thanks if anyone can help...

Your problem might be permission - related. You have to allow AXFR transfers from your server to the two NS servers. I don't have the proper syntax handy now...

Anyway, do the log files say something?

[edit] and, yes, this post would be better suited in the Networking section
