Dear spawnisalive,
Salam,

Please Check out at LinuxPakistan Forum.... http://www.linuxpakistan.net/forum2x/vi ... .php?t=517

named.conf:

Code: Select all

;
; Aarons version of an BIND 8.2.2 named.conf
;

options {
   directory "/etc/namedb";

//      forward only;

/*
   forwarders {
      127.0.0.1;
   };
*/
};

// Note: the following will be supported in a future release.
/*
host { any; } {
   topology {
      127.0.0.0/8;
   };
};
*/

// Setting up secondaries is way easier and the rough picture for this
// is explained below.
//
// If you enable a local name server, don't forget to enter 127.0.0.1
// into your /etc/resolv.conf so this server will be queried first.
// Also, make sure to enable it in /etc/rc.conf.

zone "." {
   type hint;
   file "named.root";
};

zone "0.0.127.IN-ADDR.ARPA" {
   type master;
   file "localhost.rev";
};

// NB: Do not use the IP addresses below, they are faked, and only
// serve demonstration/documentation purposes!
//
// Example secondary config entries.  It can be convenient to become
// a secondary at least for the zone where your own domain is in.  Ask
// your network administrator for the IP address of the responsible
// primary.
//
// Never forget to include the reverse lookup (IN-ADDR.ARPA) zone!
// (This is the first bytes of the respective IP address, in reverse
// order, with ".IN-ADDR.ARPA" appended.)
//
// Before starting to setup a primary zone, better make sure you fully
// understand how DNS and BIND works, however.  There are sometimes
// unobvious pitfalls.  Setting up a secondary is comparably simpler.
//
// NB: Don't blindly enable the examples below. :-)  Use actual names
// and addresses instead.
//
// NOTE!!! FreeBSD runs bind in a sandbox (see named_flags in rc.conf).
// The directory containing the secondary zones must be write accessible
// to bind.  The following sequence is suggested:
//
//   mkdir /etc/namedb/s
//   chown bind.bind /etc/namedb/s
//   chmod 750 /etc/namedb/s

zone "173.76.207.in-addr.arpa" in { type master; file "db.207.76.173"; };

// Note difference in style from above to below will accomplish the same thing.

zone "bind.com" {
   type master;
   file "bind.com.zone";
   };
