DNS / Dial-up question

DNS / Dial-up question

Post by Matt Underwo » Sun, 01 Aug 1999 04:00:00



I'm trying to configure my x86 with Solaris 7 to resolve DNS with my
ISP's DNS servers.  I believe I have resolv.conf configure correctly
and also have in.named running.  I think the problem is in my
/etc/named.conf file.  I was trying to set it up as a caching server.
I entered in the following:

directory /var/named
cache           .                             named.ca
primary         0.0.127.in-addr.arpa    named.local

When I dial in I am still not able to do a nslookup.  I get the
following error: "Can't find server name for address 127.0.0.1; Server
failed.  Default servers are not available."

I guess my questions would be: 1)  Do I need to configure additional
files beyond resolv.conf and named.conf  2)  How do I get named to
recognize that it needs to query my ISP's DNS servers.

Thanks,

Matt

 
 
 

1. 2.3 -> 2.7 via Dial-up (Re: CVS over 'dropping' dial-ups)

You are better off borrowing/buying/stealing a CD and loading a fresh 2.7
install.
From what I've heard, there are issues with upgrading via CVS.  Plus, it's
_SLOW_.
Trust me. If you don't have the cash (US $30, I believe) you could probably
ask
somebody to copy their 2.7 CD for you (hint,hint).  Of course, buying the CD
makes
OBSD 2.8 and higher a possibility, which is a Good Thing.

Good luck.
