BIND & Postfix refuse to start
 
Hi there. I cannot get BIND & Postfix to start after following the suse 10.0 setup. I find the instructions a little grey when it comes to the hostname/domain side of things...

I am a linux newbie, and so am quite certain that the hostname/domain config etc are foobar.

My linux box is part of a small network of 2-3 computers total, with my router acting as DHCP server. The SUSE server has a fixed IP on the subnet. There is no domain, and I would prefer to keep it this way unless it is required.

I want to be able to use it as a development server (in adition to it being my SAMBA server), and thought ISPConfig would be the way to go, but need help with configuring the DNS sides of things I think.

Can anyone please suggest the config required on the server, and with ISPConfig, to achieve my simple needs?

Thank you.

Nicholas

OK. I got the pop3 service to start by setting runlevels manually and starting. Now for the DNS issues...

here is teh error I'm getting:
Code:

Starting name server BIND /etc/named.d/forwarders.conf:7: '{' expected near ';'
..skipped

The file reads:
Code:

# Copyright (c) 2001-2004 SuSE Linux AG, Nuernberg, Germany.
# All rights reserved.
# Forwarders file for PPPD updates (only)
#
# /etc/named.d/forwarders.conf

forwarders ;

How should this be configured??

It should be something like this:

Code:

# The forwarders record contains a list of servers to
# which queries should be forwarded. Enable this line and
# modify the IP-address to your provider's name server.
# Up to three servers may be listed.
forwarders { 194.25.2.129; };

However, if you don't need it, comment it out:

Code:

#forwarders { 194.25.2.129; };
