Hi All,

I have a Linux CentOS server.

Can anyone please help me by giving the exact steps for the following:
1. Set-up a DNS name resolution system for resolving addresses.
2. The DNS server must perform forward and reverse lookup operations.
3. Name resolution should be configured to use the above IP addresses and not the localhost (127.0.0.1).

Thanks

You need to registrar domain at first if it is public Name server.Then enter your control panel and set your DNS IP there into NS record.For an example, if it is Godaddy.com you may see the following and just add your record by click on adding:
Godaddy
If you configure this Name Server for your local network then you don't need to registrar.For that case, you need to set Forwarders to your ISP DNS so that your LAN users may use your DNS and DNS will forward queries to your ISP DNS to resolve.

However, I have attached a document describes step by step how to configure public DNS.You can check and try.
