    Welcome to the forums!

    If you don't need the functions of a full-blown nameserver and desire nameserver caching only, I'd recommend installing pdnsd instead of bind.

    There might be a package for it already in the Fedora repositories.

    I'm not quite understanding why you would post this. A full installation isn't any type of security issue. Not as long as unnecessary services are disabled there shouldn't be any problems. Perhaps you could elaborate?

    I just started learning how to do DNS in linux . So I read some ebook and they said that I must have Bind and caching-nameserver .

    I'm not running Red Hat or CentOS so can't check it but I think the following should work if you want to install bind rather than pdnsd:

    Code:
    yum install bind bind-chroot bind-libs bind-utils caching-nameserver
    Maybe someone else can verify.

    Thank ozar , I tried following your guide but everything is still the same as before. Linux doesn't enable to install the package of pdnsd downloading from Web. I downloaded some versions from another site but they didn't work too.

    If you haven't setup your system to use yum for installing packages, you can check this HowTo for the steps to do so:

    Docs/Drafts/SoftwareManagementGuide/ManageWithYum - FedoraProject

    This HowTo was written for Fedora, but it should be about the same procedure for Red Hat / CentOS.

    Maybe a current Red Hat user will step in with the exact steps for that distribution.
