HELP: DNS - *.foo.org OK foo.org BAD

Post by Kingsley Turne » Fri, 02 Jul 1999 04:00:00



G'day,

I've configured my dns data, such that everything works ok,
except that when I look up the network name.

That is, I want foo.org to return a particular IP,
(the same as www.foo.org.)  Obviously slashdot.org does this
so it must be possible...

$ nslookup
Default Server:  dns1.maddogsbreakfast.com.au
Address:  203.41.238.33

Quote:> www.maddogsbreakfast.com.au

Server:  dns1.maddogsbreakfast.com.au
Address:  203.41.238.33

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    dns1.maddogsbreakfast.com.au
Address:  203.41.238.33
Aliases:  www.maddogsbreakfast.com.au

Quote:> maddogsbreakfast.com.au

Server:  dns1.maddogsbreakfast.com.au
Address:  203.41.238.33

*** dns1.maddogsbreakfast.com.au can't find maddogsbreakfast.com.au:
Server failed

Any help is much appreciated.

the top of your zone file.
If you had posted the beginning of your zone file people
could have told you exactly where.

This is a problem.  If you're serving the domain, you should be
authoritative.  It's probably just a typo in your zone file.  Perhaps your
SOA record has an error or you don't have the correct NSERV records. We
automatically check for stray commas and such when we get such errors in
the domains we run.  Try setting up a log for bind and see what messages
develop.

You'll need an "IN" line for each name that you want to appear.

So, if you have a line like:
maddogsbreakfast.com.au. IN A 203.41.238.33

it'll resolve the name "maddogsbreakfast.com.au".

You should also put in an MX record for maddogsbreakfast.com.au to make
sure the mail always goes to the right place.

Now, you might be tempted to do something like

Do NOT do this.  It will not work.

Instead, do something like



which is the sort of thing that works for me.

1. Q: file:/foo/foo.gif = /foo/foo.gif ?

How does the httpd resolve these two HTLM-commands:

1.  <IMG ALIGN=BOTTOM ALT="foo" SRC="file:/foodir/foo.gif"></A>

2.  <IMG ALIGN=BOTTOM ALT="foo" SRC="/foodir/foo.gif"></A>

Are they handled identically?
Where are the differences?
What notation should I use?

ThanX,
        Harry.

2. Installing Philips Acoustic Edge soundcard

3. Why ${FOO} or $(FOO) instead of just $FOO ?

4. XFree86 Setup w/Diamond Monster Fusion

5. Multiple variables, ie: foo=1&foo=2&foo=3

6. Reading MS-DOS disks from Digital UNIX server

7. foo=X%XY%Z; echo ${foo//X/w} works;echo ${foo//%%/p} NotWhatIwant

8. Apache or CERN

9. Difference between #include "foo.h" and <foo.h>

10. Make: implicit "dir/foo.o: foo.c" - how?

11. pipe $foo to stdout? ($foo is multiline data)

12. KernelJanitor - Change applicable char *foo to char foo[]

13. What is the meaning of "foo" and $foo"?
