DNS server sometimes stops working?
Recently I took up the plan to make myself a website development server at home. I bought a netbook to be the server and installed ispconfig 3 on it. I created some websites on it and everything went well so far. At that time I was simply using the hosts file on my computer to reach the server. However this was rather impractical if I wanted to change computers to work on.
Therefor I decided to use the DNS server capabilities of ISPConfig. All this is very new to me, so I struggled a little bit to get everything working. I set up my router to recognise my server as DNS server as well. In the end I thought I managed to get everything right and I could reach all my dev websites without using the hosts files.
The problem I'm having now is that sometimes the whole system decides it wants to stop working for no apparent reason. I don't think I'm doing anything to trigger this. After a while it all starts working again. I can still reach the server by directly using the IP address, however the domain names are unreachable. "Server not found".
I have 2 urls set up (actually more, but the effect is the same on all and for the example these 2 urls should be enough I think). The ip of the server is 192.168.1.50
calvin.dev: This is more a general url to reach the server. There is no website configured behind this url. Just the standard url to reach the control panel, phpmyadmin, nameservers, ...
dev-cms.dev: This is the website I'm developing.
doing an nslookup of dev-cms.dev. I get the following output
My ipconfig /all is
Now to the DNS configuration itself. Please bear in mind that I'm new to all this and if I'm doing something retarder, please tell me. I'd be very happy to learn more about this subject.
I created a zone for each url I'm using. In this example, there are 2 DNS zones.
Does anyone have an idea what I'm doing wrong? It's not that the server itself is unreachable, as I can reach the server by only using the IP and thus bypassing the DNS stuff altogether. If anything is unclear, please ask :)
