I configure DNS i.e. BIND but i can't add hosts in that server? due to which the email clients can not access mail server? please suggest me solution for these, its urgent.
No, this is NOT urgent for anyone here. We volunteer our time, so don't tell folks to hurry up and answer you.

Also, if this is a new installation, why are you using Fedora 14, when it's two versions behind right now? Current version is 16. Also, if this is going to be a production server, use a server-OS, like CentOS, which doesn't have a rapid upgrade/obsolescence cycle. And your problem/question isn't very clear. Can't add hosts WHERE in that server? (/etc/hosts? Into DNS? Email? Virtual hosting?? What?), and what email server are you setting up with what capabilities? (postfix? Sendmail? Dovcot? Using IMAP? POP3? Spamassassin enabled?)

A quick Google search on setting up such things yields lots:
http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...x_Mail_Servers
http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...onfiguring_DNS
http://www.howtoforge.com/fedora-8-s...-ftp-ispconfig
http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/Lin...iteConfig.html

One of the tutorials is for Fedora 8, but the procedures should still be valid.

Yes. If you memorize the step-by-step configuration of BIND and MTA you will use.

Sorry, dont take this the wrong way but just to add on to TBone's reply which is imho should be sufficient if you have given it a try, here's a link searching Google with keywords

+fedora 14 +bind +setup returing a hit with


www.server-world.info/en/note?os=Fedora_14&p=dns

and browsing www.server-world.info, i found

http://www.server-world.info/en/note...dora_14&p=mail

That's almost step by step. Surely it's adaptable to your needs?

This is a blog which I have written

I don't think there should be any difference between RHEL and Fedora CLI

Check these


sendmail configuration

DNS configuration

Best of luck

Yes, we did. Can you read the documentation provided, and follow it?
