I'm asking how can I log the zone transfers to a separate log file? What I'm wanting to do is to determine the status of zone transfers, either success or failure in a log file. If I can't log the zone transfers to a separate log file. How can I determine the success or failure of the zone transfers in a log file? We maintain the master, an outside vendor maintains the slaves.
Also, I'm using the default Ubuntu setup with the three files named.conf, named.conf.local, and named.conf.options. In the named.conf.options file there's a paragraph that states if your using a firewall between you and nameservers you want to talk to, then you might need to uncomment the line
query-source address* port 53;
I do have a firewall between the master and the slaves. Will I need to uncomment this line?
