    Question I can nslookup by ip but not by name?


    I have added entry to namedeamon but the problem is that I cannot nslookup by name.

    krzysiek@ns3:~$ nslookup 194.223.199.28
    Server: 172.20.50.11
    Address: 172.20.50.11#53

    28.199.223.194.in-addr.arpa name = itaccesspoint.cgi.co.uk.

    krzysiek@ns3:~$ nslookup itaccesspoint.cgi.co.uk
    Server: 172.20.50.11
    Address: 172.20.50.11#53

    ** server can't find itaccesspoint.cgi.co.uk: NXDOMAIN

    Your DNS server, 172.20.50.11, is in the private address range. Is that what you intended? That is, are you running a local DNS server? Usually your ISP provides you two or three DNS addresses that are not local addresses.

    BTW, the address you are looking up doesn't return anything for me either.

    nslookup Ip = uses reverse dns pointer to resolve IP to name.
    nslookup fqdn = looking at forward dns name to resolve to IP

    ...so check your forward zone to see if everything is configred probably.
