bind rndc not work:"rndc: connect failed: timed out"


i got some problems with rndc, i could use it to control bind.
i got "rndc: connect failed: timed out" when using rndc.

i checked by netstat and saw rndc still listen on port 953,
tcp 0 0* LISTEN
but i cant connect to port 953 by telnet 953. i also checked only bind open that port.
how to fix!

do you have a firewall on your machine that could possibly be blocking port 953?

Thumbs up named not starting and stoping

Just 2 reasons for failure in starting and stopping named service

1. /etc/hosts must have entries for localhost localhost.localdomain localhost machine-name

Specify the name of ur machine(hostname)

2. Stop firewall(iptables)
$service iptables stop
allow port 953 through firewall
