I am writing this article as of my experience to share with all of you so that it may help someone to configure a DNS server in their network. Here the example I have taken is as such I have implemented and tested except, the domain I am taking here is Imaginary or call it Unregistered.
Domain :- bimalpandit.com
IP (DNS server) :- 10.11.12.5
IP (Mail server) :- 10.11.12.6 and 10.11.12.7
IP (Proxy server) :- 10.11.12.254
Tested on :- RH9 and FC3
1) One has an option about wether he wants to run his DNS server in a chrooted environment or not, i.e. for chrooted environment the point of reference would be like “/var/named/chroot/” for example if you install FC3 and the package “bind-chroot-9.2.4-2” you will see that you need to think “/var/named/chroot/” as “/” and rest will remain the same.
2) All the clients should point to “10.11.12.5” as their nameserver (DNS server) i.e. in clients /etc/resolve.conf put “nameserver 10.11.12.5”
3) The Scenario is as shown in the figure…
