I've searched and found setup examples for BIND / DNS for Class C non-routable ip addresses, but can not find an example for public-facing DNS entries

I'm trying to set up BIND DNS on windows in our DMZ that will answer authoritatively
for our public-facing services like www, ftp, smtp etc.

I've found lots of examples for internal, class-c non-routable IP addresses but none
for how to set it up for public services.

I've learned a little about windows DNS, and use it for internal DNS.  I've also had windows
DNS zones for our domains, but need to split the two for security purposes.

The one machine I've put into our DMZ is running windows xp professional, and since that's
not a server OS, I don't have windows DNS to use, so I've installed a windows version of BIND.

I also have several domains that are hosted by the same server - alternate variations of our domain
name.

Thanks in advance for your help with this!

Thanks, peralesa -

That's great information, but I _think_ I've already covered that part of the process.
What I'm asking about here is the actual zone setup process / syntax.

Sorry if I wasn't clear in what I need.

Thanks!

What application did you install on your windows XP box to handle your DNS?  Remember also that Windows XP only supports 10 concurrent connections...

I've installed:

Release of BIND 9.5 for Window 2000/XP/2003


I don't think we have enough traffic to worry about the
concurrent connections.

It's temporary until I can get a better machine for this application.


I think I've figured out the zone files for one domain, but I host several
domains (some are aliases of each other - mydomain.com, mydomain.net, mydomain.org)
etc.  

I still need help with setting up reverse / ptr zones and multiple domains on my
server.

Thanks for the help - sorry but I've been on the road since my original post.
