I am trying to setup my own nameservers and am having trouble. I am not sure if I did things correctly or not:
I setup a master zone for a domain. I put in my static ip address etc.
Using virtualmin I created a new server. The records file shows ip addresses of the local machine ie 192.168.1.235 instead of my static ip. Is this correct? or should it also show the static ip?
i only have one ip address so it is ok to setup just one nameserer on my machine and then register with a freen nameservers service for the second one. I would then include both of these at my domain registrar info.
Is there a way to reinitialize the bind module on webmin? I guess when I first set it up I do not remember what option I chose to first set up the bind module. I do not seem to have entries for the root nameservers and when I try to download them I get nothing…unless I am looking in the wrong place.
How can I tell what method of installation was used, and how to redo it. I have uninstalled the module, uninstalled bind on my machine and reinstalled, but nothing changes.
