Setting up DNS

    Long story short. I got an internet connection and I want to host a website (or two).

    I am using Suse 9 Enterprise for the server. I have something set up wrong in the DNS though. From another computer I can ping and it comes back with my IP address. But I cannot ping Were did I go wrong?

    And more importantly, where is a good website that covers setting up DNS in suse 9 Enterprise? That way I can read on my own without bothering all the nice people here.

    --edited-- I can plug the IP address directly into the browser from another computer and get the webserver. Or at least the default spash page that Apache uses.

    I have some "allow-recursion", "allow-transfer", and also-notify sections in the global part of the named.conf but here's the big pieces. Some is redundant but this works ;f:


    options {
    directory "/var/named";
    pid-file "/var/run/named/";
    auth-nxdomain yes;

    zone ""{
    type master;
    file "";
    notify yes;
    allow-query { any; };

    $TTL 1M;
    @ IN SOA (
    2004102201 ; serial
    10800 ; Retry after 3 hours
    3600 ; retry after 1 hour
    2D ; 2 days
    604800 ) ; Minimum TTL of 1 week
    IN MX 10
    ; Name servers
    ; Addresses for the canonical names
    ; IN A IN A IN A IN A
    ; Pointers to the www site...
    ; For those who insist on dumb names...
    * IN CNAME

    Thanks HerrGlock. That was helpful. I am having a problem with slep 9. They have it set up so that everything runs with ldap support. I have had nothing but problems with ldap. Seems to me that if you change anything you lose everything. I have had this problem and my friend also has had this problem. It is either a POS or there is some stupid setting that we are missing.

    As a result I am in the middle of a fresh install of Slack 10. If Suse and Novell can't get it together then I will use another platform.

    Thanks again for you help.

    I recommend getting the book DNS and Bind. I'm not even doing anything DNS related right now and I got it anyway just in case.

    I finally got it all working last night. My IP changed cause I got a static from my ISP so it will take a while for everything to resolve now. But I think I got it working.

    I am much happier with Slack 10. I got apache working, I got mysl working, I got a firewall working, Now all I am fighting with is the cheap crap that my ISP gave me to work with.
