Question DNS related question


I got to setup a DNS server for an ISP, i need my nameserver to resolve the outbound as well as
inbound queries. From the "TLDP howto" ( I am little bit
confiused by hearing resolving, caching, etc. name server.

I know that, the name server cache outbound known as caching only nameserver. and anoter
aspect of nameserver is "forwarding" - this can forward the outbound query to another nameserver,
usually nameserver provided by ISP.

My question is:

1. I don't want caching/forwarding nameserver...i want a standrad server just like ISP.
so, what to do?

2. How to mirror same entry to a backup (secondery DNS) server on-the-fly whenever
i am making new dns entry.

If i understand right you need to setup a DNS server. You can use free ones like I use zoneedit and it works great for me. As for the secondary DNS mirroring i think zoneedit has a tool for that.
