DNS and bind

Any one knows of a simple to follow guide to setup a DNS and BIND behind a firewall on a Redhat 7.2?

If you Google for DNS and BIND, you will find many howto documents. The only difference when running a firewall is that you have to open port 53 on the firewall.

If you're using IPTABLES, for example:

# DNS - allow local queries on subnet
-A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 53                        --syn -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 53                              -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p udp -m udp -s --sport 53 -d 0/0       -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp -s --sport 53 -d 0/0 --syn -j ACCEPT
