Problem configuring BIND...

Hi,

I installed dhcp and bind on a fresh CentOS 5.5 server but I'm having problems resolving names. There are no problems running dig commands on the server. I can query external sites, my internal zone and do reverse lookups.

The problem is, my clients aren't registering in the DNS and nameresolving from a client against the server doesn't work.

I've tried using the named.conf sample as a base and creating my zones from scratch but with no luck. Seems like I've tried every guide out there but I'm stuck. When checking open ports on the server from my client, port 53 wasn't open which to me sounds like either there is a firewall issue or bind isn't responding to queries from my clients.

Would very much appreciate any help... I can post the conf files too if that would be of assistance.

 

Best regards

Mattias

Yes, as I suspected. The firewall was blocking port 53. Solved!
