Running CentOS 5 - fully patched
selinux and iptables are both disabled
bind and bind-chroot installed
I setup a very small network at some offsite trade shows a few times a year. I setup a web server using Apache. The server address is 10.10.10.10. I have clients connect through a Cisco switch for connectivity (and DHCP). I have them just browse to 10.10.10.10 to hit the application.
I would like to configure bind on that same server and point the switch so that clients use the same IP 10.10.10.10 for DNS. The 10.10.10.10 needs to have bind configured so that orderentry.companyname.com points to 10.10.10.10. Therefore, I can tell my users to hit a more familiar URL versus a hard to remember IP address.
Will someone please guide in creating a simple named.conf file that would work for this? Also, where should this file be located before attempted to start the named service?
