Hi list,

I've a DNS behaviour I don't understand.

1/ I've a DNS server which resolves mydomain.com and some aliases :
server.mydomain.com (the alias is put in the zone file like this   :
SERVER    A   the_ip)
2/ from the DNS server,all is right : dig mydomain.com and dig
server.domain.com give the good informations
3/ from a computer somewhere on the internet, a dig mydomain.com give
the Ip address of the server, but server.mydomain.com can't be resolved.

The only way to have resolutions is to give the ip address of my server
as the primary dns of the internet connexion, but unfortenaly, I can't
ask all people of the world to do this.....

Can somebody help me ?

Very best regards

Check /etc/named.conf. It sounds like you have the default file that only allows queries from the local system. I was "off the air" for most of a day when I installed the last bind update because of this. My named.conf got replaced with the default and I had the same symptoms. The new one *should* have been installed as .rpmnew so the files could get merged without taking people down. Grrrr.

If you can't find a reference on the 'net for configuring named.conf, drop a private e-mail to me and I'll ship a copy of what I use your way.
