Smile [HELP ] Bind problem


I wanted to configure bind on my linux computer, and use it as the dns server for my other computer,

I am using red hat 9 and win xp,

I started by editing the named.custom file adding a zone entry bb.com,
then I created the /etc/named/bb.com.zone file and putting the values for

ns1 and ns2 and two hosts t1 and t2.

---

when i try to restart bind I get the error

rndc could not connect, connection refused, I removed the use rndc key from the named.conf file,

after that I was able to restart bind, and

service bind status was showing

4 zones,
/..
..

,,,,,,,,,

when I try to use this computer (10.0.0.2) as the default name server on my windows computer, and do a nslookup on the windows computer, I am getting,


*** Can't find server name for address 172.16.16.101: Non-existent domain
*** Default servers are not available
Default Server: UnKnown
Address: 10.0.0.2

>



when I give the name t1.bb.com , the host and zone that I had configured, I get the error message,

query refused..

!!!!!!!!!!

what am I doing wrong,

NEED HELP..........

First why are you using such an old and unsupported distro ?

As for the query being refused its because your allow-query statement does not include the address of your XP machine
