how do you create a reverse lookup zone in linux mandrake 7.2
Posted on 2003-02-25
i have an external dns server using linux mandrake 7.2. Now, on my personal computer, running windows 2000, i use it as my primary dns server. but when i issue a "nslookup" command in command prompt, it gives me the error message "can't find server named for address: <dns ip>. Non-existent Domain". Now i read in another article that i'm supposed to create a reverse lookup zone, but the examples given doesn't work. in mandrake 7.2, theres a command "linuxconf" where i can go in and set dns settings; is this where i can define a reverse lookup zone too? note, my dns server doesn't have private ip, just public. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
