Setting Up LAN/Internet DNS Server


I used bind in debian sarge to configure LAN/Internet DNS Server. I tried several times attempts to do it but I cannot find the exact configurations. Experts may I ask the some help about the procedure on this matter? Can I ping the DNS after such configurations?

Hi paullamhkg, can I do this in just two computers only? The setup requires 6 ip address to complete the whole setup.

yes, you can do this in just 2 computers, you can put the DNS service  with others service like firewall, dhcp in one computer, www, ftp, etc.... into other computer. all depending on what service(s) going to run, so in your named.conf use the correct ip(s) or aliases, cname will do.
