dns issues - seems to be skipping my dns server...
ok, so my local network seems to be skipping my internal dns server, and going straight for the forwarders...
so i now know the problem lies with my dns server.
my current dns is set up like so...
Set forwarders manually
my isp nameserver ip is in the forwarders list.
System Logging, all other tick boxes checked..
(cant find system log files tho, how do i view these, as its not in the /var/log directory...)
osirus.local.net type: Master
Enable Zone Transport
No NS Records
No MX Records
TTL: 2 days
Refresh: 3 Hours
Retry: 1 Hour
Expiration: 1 Week
Minimum: 1 Day
<record key> | <type> | <value>
megatron | A | 192.168.0.5
so basically what i want, is for my computer to ask my server, hey, do u know the name of this address? if no, then use my isp's nameserver (as dns should work), if it does know the name, the used the cached address(again, how dns should work...)
what i cant understand is why it is ignoring the megatron record....and my dhcp server has this set up as a host, with correct mac address and all...
any help on this would be greatly appreciated...
