DNS Aliases on Debian 3
Posted on 2003-10-25
I'm running Debian 3 and am trying to set up the whole caboodle (mail, ftp, web, dns) on one server. I have a domain name (diablog.co.uk) which is on external domain name servers. I have the external DNSes set up so that certain subdomains (eg me.diablog.co.uk) are pointed at my server. However, my router can't cope with using these external DNSes since when I am trying to get to them from the inside. Therefore, I am using my server as a DNS server from inside my network.
My problem is that I can't create an alias for my server.
I tried doing it manually, and then installed webmin to help. From webmin, my "records file" looks like this:
diablog.co.uk. IN SOA rover.diablog.co.uk. 2003102514 (
@ IN MX 5 192.168.7.100.
@ IN NS 192.168.7.100.
diablog.co.uk. IN A 192.168.7.100
me.diablog.co.uk. IN CNAME rover.diablog.co.uk.
Dunno if it's any use.
