    DNS conifguration problem!!

    I consulted some of the threads and configured DNS on my linux machine running Fedora Core 1....
    I have made appropriate changes in /etc/resolv.conf and named.conf

    Now i start named(BIND) it starts sucessfully
    andnow i try "host" for some site say
    then it shows the following message.....

    ;;connection timed out;no servers could be reached

    I m connected to internet through a LAN.And i am not a proxy server..
    please help me

    No, that is fine. Now show me the results for these commands:

    ps -Af | grep 'named'
    netstat -an | grep ':53'

  6. #5

    the info.....

    named 3877 1 0 Apr02 ? 00:00:00 usr/sbin/named -u named -t /var/named/chroot
    root 17228 27730 0 01:25 pts/1 00:00:00 grep named

    and for netstat -an | grep ':53'

    tcp 0 0* LISTEN
    tcp 0 0* LISTEN
    udp 0 0*
    udp 0 0*
    udp 0 0*

    actually i dont want to do zone hosting ...i just want ip adresses of the domain names..

    I understand that. There is something strange listening on:

    udp 0 0*

    Show me the results for this command:

    lsof -nPiTCP:53

  8. #7

    for the command u requested!!!

    named 3877 named 8u IPv4 3710 TCP (LISTEN)
    named 3877 named 10u IPv4 3712 TCP (LISTEN)

    above is the output of the command

    Oops, should've used UDP. Show me the results for this command:

    lsof -nPiUDP:53

  10. #9

    for udp

    named 3877 named 6u IPv4 3723 UDP *:53
    named 3877 named 7u IPv4 3709 UDP
    named 3877 named 9u IPv4 3711 UDP

    Well that's interesting. I've never seen BIND listen on before. *shrug* it doesn't matter. Let's test out these connectivity issues you've got.

    Show me the results for the following commands:


    I'm testing out a problem that only effects .COM/.NET domains. The above .com might timeout while the .org works.
