I have to setup a datacenter that consist more than 30 pc from internal and external...

I have a satic ip...i have a linux router ( fc ) with 3 network card....i register a free domain from dyndns.org and pointing to my static ip. and if external want to surf to my web server, they will have to go thru my linux router then my linux will point to internal pc which is webserver.

i just install DNS bind-9.2.4rc4.tar.gz to my linux router....but after installing my file in linux , name.conf is empty. What else file in linux is related to my dns setup?..

Some of my friends told me i have to saparate the dns to a single pc to become dns server...i confuse on this...

can i just setup a dns server in my linux router pc?..which is powerfull enough with xeon and 1 gb ddram...

let say my domain name that i register from dyndns is lynx.ath.cx. so my domain is lynx.ath.cx and my hostname is host.lynx.ath.cx

any good solution or any idea?

currently i use this named.conf

zone "lynx.ath.cx" {

type master;
notify no;

allow-query { any; };
file "lynx.ath.cx";

};

but i got sample of named.conf which for me looks more nicer, but how to match my domain name with scripts?...i cannot run it in services...

// generated by named-bootconf.pl

options {
      directory "/var/named";
      /*
       * If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
       * to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
       * directive below.  Previous versions of BIND always asked
       * questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 uses an unprivileged
       * port by default.
       */
      // query-source address * port 53;
};

//
// a caching only nameserver config
//
controls {
      inet 127.0.0.1 allow { localhost; } keys { rndckey; };
};
zone "." IN {
      type hint;
      file "named.ca";
};

zone "localhost" IN {
      type master;
      file "localhost.zone";
      allow-update { none; };
};

zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" IN {
      type master;
      file "named.local";
      allow-update { none; };
};

include "/etc/rndc.key";

This really isn't too difficult but I *HIGHLY* recommend that you read:

http://tldp.org/HOWTO/DNS-HOWTO.html

for once you have, you'll know everything that you need to for your simple setup.

No, not for the size network you've described.
