Running Bind/named


On a RedHat 7.3p server and workstation combination (experimental network), I have installed NFS on the server and configured three directories for export. When I tried a manual mount of the /pub dir. from the workstation (mount server:/pub /pub) I got the message "can't get the address for server". Both dir exist, the one on the server has a test file in it, the workstation is an empty dir. The host file on the wks has entries for lo, the wks, and the server. The host.conf file entry is "hosts,bind".
Secondary question: if I in fact need a DNS server for name resolution, I have installed Bind and configured it thru bindconf. Yet it seems I have no named running. Do you see named or bind in the bootup screens if it is running? I don't.
I'm fairly new to Linux, this is work being done at an internship/volunteer position for learning purposes, mine and my boss.
Any help is appreciated.
Pat

To see if named is running use
ps -e|grep named
If you get something, it's running. If not, you need to run it (using 'named', usually with parameters like '-u name' - runs as user 'name').

I would first try to just ping the other workstation to see if you get a response before you get into bind. the local host file should be good enough for a small network if all the workstations are there.

ping using IP address
then
ping using hostname

if that all works make sure the server is running a NFS server

Did these

I have done both of these items. They both came out alright.
The ping gets the server and visa versa. And the ps shows a process number. Someone else suggested that I check the host file on the server and make sure all the machines show on it also. After that I'll be lost. I had assumed also that a host file should be enough.

Got it done

Thanks for the help I've gotten past the host file problem with your help. I'm beginning to like Linux but it sure hates my typos.
I intent to post another so look and help if you can. The next problem is with portmap.
Thanks
