need help configuring debian-6.05 with DNS
 
Guys,

Can someone help me get DNS installed and working on my
Debian Squeeze? The youtubed videos that I have tried have
both failed. I get an "NXDOMAIN" with nslookup or did.

thanks for any pointers!

1. What are you trying to achieve? (access the internet, provide some
kind of DNS service to several clients or run your own DNS server)
2. What steps have you performed so far?

It might be a good idea for you to read

Kind regards,
Andrei

Run my own DNS server, for starters.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZuPq_oLQNw is the latest
videos I have tried. I followed every step. nslookup could
not find my computers domain, and I could not ping it. I
could ping my FreedBSD server, "ethic.thought.org" and my
other hosts like my destop. But not the new tower case that
I am trying to transition to.

Hold on! on ethic's /etc/host's file I had the *wrong* IP. "deb"
is my to-be new Linux server with 10.47.0.115 as its internal IP.
Now I can ping and dig and nslookup the computer *correctly*. This
is outstanding.

The next thing is to get mail on "deb"; how do I do that? A few
years ago a friend installed dovecot on ethic.thought.org. Is there
an easy way of plugging in docot into "deb.thought.org"?

thanks in advance.

A bad step for someone who is planning to setup a server.

(...)

You can start by calling Debian using all its words (to avoid
misinterpretations with "deb" that can be taken for something different)
and opening a new thread for a new problem ;-)
