I'm having a bit of an issue here. My DNS server is not allowing for the start of rndc. I recieve a rndc: connect failed: connection refused. I have been over both rndc.conf and named.conf. They are looking fine. Also when I try to go to this servers web page, i get permissions denied. I have checked the permissions and they are indeed set appropriatly. The only fishy thing I have noticed was that i cannont log into any account other than root. So this may be the cause of the problem. When i started my named it says it starts ok, but the /etc/log/message says differently. There error I get there is permissions denied for named.conf. I check the permissions here and they are also set correctly.
