I have been struggling with Domain Name Service on a new install
of Slackware and am currently stuck. I want this Linux box to be
a name server.
I have started named and when I enter: nslookup I get the error
message: Can't find server name for address 22.214.171.124 server
failed. Default server not available.
I have been reading the DNS & Bind book from O"Reilly and the
Linux documentation set. It has been difficult since the
configuration files have different names in the O'Reilly book.
I have noticed that if I modify the resolv.conf file and change
the ip address for the nameserver, it does change the ip address
that I see in the error message.
The files that I have modified are resolv.conf named.boot,
named.ca, named.hosts, named.local, and named.rev.
Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem is? Am I missing
a file that I should be configuring? Any help is appreciated.
