I'm setting up a caching server in CentOS 5.3 and am using the generic caching named.conf without much customization. I tested the DNS server with the dig
command from another comp on my network:
dig @my_dns_server google.com
The thing is, I had not yet added anything other than localhost to the allow-query line (even though the "listen-on" line DOES contain both localhost and my network).
Isn't a dig
command a query? Why did this work?
