Static IP via DHCP & Webmin DNS anomaly

(Edited out, as this might be user error. I’ll check further.)

(Edited again; this was user error but the user it not entirely to blame.)

In Webmin’s DNS module, the phrase “forward zone” is used with two meanings.

On the Webmin : Servers : DNS Server page, the link “Create forward zone” means forwarding name server, not a forward zone.

But on the Webmin : Servers : DNS Server : Create Master Zone page, “Zone type Forward” means a forward zone, not a forwarding name server.

I mistook one for the other. I have not seen "forward zone"refer to a forwarding name server before.
