It's possible I am being a bit blonde here, but I have two questions that I need to resolve (which may be related).
I have had to recreate my DNS Master and I have reloaded Bind and recreated all zones. I have not done this in about 5 years so needed a refresher.
The local terminal reports all Digs are correct and Bind works.
I have a problem logging to the machine with the following error;
It only resolves "https" logins with "IP" address on a webmin interface (https://196.X.X.X:10000
I need it to resolve to it's hostname and I can't. I have checked all my conf files and they "seem" correct.
If I try to connect to Http://
with the host name it responds with the following
"This Web server is running in SSL mode. Try the URL HTTPS://ns0.hostname.co.za
If I click on the link, as I have stated before, it does not work, but use the Https://IP
adress and it connects?
what conf file do I need to edit or what Module do I enable/disable?
When I run an NSlookup by hooking up my laptop and giving it a static IP address and the IP of the DNS as the preffered DNS, then I can resolve the hostname only after running a PING -a.
So this is a dilemma I have as well. Do I need the domain authority who we are registered with the public IP address , (in this case .co.za) to publish the hostname in order for NSLOOKUP to find the DNS's hostname not IP address.
I cannot remember if this is correct. If there is a test or check that I need to run before placing this DNS into the Public Domain please could someone provide me with a step by step guide for ID10Ts?
