Name server and forwarders

Name server and forwarders

Post by Charles Vaillancour » Thu, 22 Feb 1996 04:00:00



Hello,

I recently upgraded from SCO Open Server 3.0.0c to OSE5.0.0b,
and my name server has since stopped sending requests to my forwarders.
For instance, one of my forwarders is 3.47.28.100, and it is
in the forwarders list of the named.boot file, but this is
what I get with nslookup:

        # nslookup orange.domain.com
          Server:  localhost
          Address:  127.0.0.1

          *** localhost can't find orange: Non-existent host/domain

but if I specify my forwarder to nslookup, it works:

        # nslookup orange.domain.com 3.47.28.100
          Server:  corp.corporate.domain.com
          Address:  3.47.28.100

          Name:    orange.domain.com
          Address:  192.35.39.35

Everything worked fine with rel. 3. I can only assume that my
configuration files were wrong then, but I can't figure out
what the problem is. Any idea as to what is wrong with my
setup? All suggestions welcome!

Thanks,

Charles

1. forwarders in named.boot not working?

Hi,

I configured the named.boot file with forwarders enabled, ig.

forwarders 200.201.200.77 200.202.66.101

where 200.* are the nameserver addresses located at my ISP.

The local nslookup workingi perfectly, but whenever I treid to nslookup
forexample www.yahoo.com, it failed.

However if I add the nameserver IP address of my ISP in the
/etc/resolv.conf file, the ping to outside hostname (ig. www.yahoo.com)
works, but the nslookup still failed.

Does anyone tell me how to setup of resolve and named correctly?

Thanks
Sam
