BIND not starting!
I'm having troubles with BIND9, it says: "rndc: connect failed: 127.0.0.1#953: connection refused". I have tried a bunch of solutions, but none worked. I do not have /etc/named.conf, /etc/rndc.conf, or /var/named or any sub-directories.
I followed this tutorial to install it.
It has never worked for me. Any help would be thanked. And what is Named?
Could be a firewalling issue, you'll probably need to a firewall exception to allow localhost to connect to port 953!
Bind requires that the key you defined in bind config is the same as the one in rndc config. Check to see that they are the same.
How are you loading the key in bind?
Are you running bind in a chroot environment?
Nevermind, I guess I didn't have rndc or something. I removed BIND and installed from apt-get (not the source). It said it was going to install rndc also, so...
