    Bind 9.3.0 Issues - Newbie :)

    Hi everyone,

    I am setting up a virtual network using three dell pcs running freebsd. My
    goal in the setup is to map a few REAL domain names to a local ip address so
    that I can direct traffic to a single web-server. This is being done for a
    reserach project looking at the effects of real traffic patterns on web ser
    vers. For example, my local network will see traffic directed to
    m and map it to a fixed ip on my network.

    Unfortunately, the tests I am running on the setup are not working.

    The relavent portion of named.conf looks like this:

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

    zone "" {
    type master;
    file "master/";

    and looks like this:

    $TTL 86400 IN SOA localhost. jsm078.localhost.(
    86400) IN A
    localhost. IN A

    BUT when I try to named, I get the following error:

    dns_rdata_fromtext: master/ near eol: unexpected end of

    zone loading master file master/ unexpec
    ted end of input

    Any ideas what might be going on? Thanks for any input!

    All zone files must have at least one NS record.

    The error message says you've got a problem with line 6. But I don't know what line 6 is. Please paste the exact contents of your zone file into your next reply and put CODE BB tags around the text to keep it readable.
