DNS For Redhat EL5


Hello Sir,

I have installed Redhat Linux EL5 Server in Server Machine. I should configure DNS Server as Primary Server (Intranet Purpose).

My DNS Name is abc-it.com and IP Address is 180.100.103.1. My network ranges IPs are 180.100.0.0/16.

This DNS is not used for mail server.

I was created many time. But its failue.

How to configure DNS Server as Primary Server.

Please explain step by step.

Advanced Thanks
A.Kannan

Try this http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/w...onfiguring_DNS

Note that by default, RH uses a chrooted version of bind, so everything is under /var/named/chroot

Try dig from the server itself

1. - you need to specify the port for telnet, otherwise you are connecting to the telnet server.

2. - why are you running a telnet server, they are security holes.

Is that dig from the dns server itself?

On the server, what does

netstat -alpn | grep :53

show?

Where did nec-it.com come into it (chort, that's not directed at you, it was in post #5)?

Edit - can you post named.conf (that bit at the top isn't the whole thing I assume)?
