    Slave zone for caching.


    I just thought that creating a slave zone on my server for popular sites like google.com could save me bandwidth and improve the speed.

    So I tried to create a slave zone using the system-config-bind tool

    I first asked for the creation of a zone.
    Specified it as class IN -> OK
    Forwards -> OK
    zone name -> google.com.

    Then I specified the parameters for master zone servers as the IP addresses of ns1.google.com through ns4.google.com

    Saved and service named restart.

    And LO! google.com stopped working.

    When I tried to preview the slave zone file, it was clean and empty. I tried to set the refresh time to a few seconds and restarted named in the hope that the slave would update from master in vain.

    So I ultimately pruned the slave zone record to get google.com back.

    Where could I have gone wrong?

    Please help me.

    Thank you.
