DNS problem

Post by Berdz » Sat, 30 Jun 2001 21:37:18



Hi all

I configured my own domain. On the localhost everything seems to be ok. But
others servers don't see my domain. There are no errors in
/var/log/messages. I don't also have directive notify no in /etc/named.conf.

Thanx for your help

Have you registerd your domain server with a domain registry.  Additionally,
check to make sure that there is no firewall in place which is blocking port
53 in the TCP and UDP worlds.

I unblocked port 53 on firewall. I didn't register it. I of course know that
every domain must me registered. But this I got from my friend who could
give me some domains.

You will need to have your domain name server registered with the domain
registry so that people who want to go to this domain know which domain name
server to go to.  Until, your DNS server is registered, no one will be able to
go to your domain unless they know the IP address of your nameserver and
explicitly set that as their primary domain name server.

Unless it is a subdomain delegated from said friend's nameservers.
