Question DNS Probels with Redhat 8.0


I have a Redhat 8.0 web server which is servering the web site nicely to 210.10.80.77 but I am trying to get it working with my isp at the moment so 210.10.80.77 is www.bjc.id.au. I have an Ipcop box as the gateway and have port 53 port forwarded to the web/dns server. I will have a secondary latter on but I am having enough troubles as it is with the primary. I am configuring bind using the graphical tool that comes with redhat 8.0. The problem is the isp only know windows stuff and nothing linux. If any can help that would be great.

If you trying to be the SOA for your domain, you'll need to have a primary and secondary DNS, as far as i know....

SOA is state of authority.

is it you want to know how to set up DNS server or what?

I want to know hwo to set up a Primary DNS server behind an Ipcop Firewall on the same machine as the web server. The secondary is geographicly in a diffrent posstion, On a friends network also behind an Ipcop Firewall. I think how it will work is that the secondary will just get the DNS records from the Primary. So there is really no setting up for the secondary. I have got the dns server and web server going on the one box. But now I need to know how to connect the secondary in to it.

My isp tells me.

This is an e-mail from about 5mins ago.

where you added the domain into the dns server, there should be option about
mx records (which you have already entered). So around the same place as
where the mx records are entered, there should be a place to enter in the ns
or name servers as well.

I dont really understand that????

See the problem is I dont really have any clear cut questions to ask. It is all very grey and murky for me. Expect for this one. What does delegation mean?

Thanks Big Brad

To setup DNS server you take a look at www.tldp.org search for the DNS howto. TO let your DNS server works, you can edit your IPCOP to open port 53

Dig is utility to find the information about your domain.

I think your format is wrong, it should be dig q=any 210.10.80.77 bjc.id.au

It is means please show me any information about 210.10.80.77 in bjc.id.au

Dig command only available in linux so you must do it in linux.
Usully dig command is used when you setup a name server.

Ok guys
I have got my web server going fine and dandy. Mail server time. I have managed to get this far it is not funny. I have been able to send messages from my mail server but not receieve. I can telnet into both pop and smtp servers. So the only thing I can think of is that it is DNS problem once again. I am using sendmail and ipop3.

Thanks Brad
