I configured a DNS on FC8. I followed the howtoforge tutorial
when i try to resolve www.testdomain.net
from another machine (a machine other than the one which i configured DNS), it is not able to resolve the same.
[root@localhost ~]# ping www.testdomain.net
ping: unknown host www.testdomain.net
If i ping it from the same machine on which DNS is configured it is pinging.
[root@localhost]# ping www.testdomain.net
(192.168.0.19) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.0.19: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.036 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.0.19: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.048 ms

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.036/0.042/0.048/0.006 ms
When i check for the status of my namd service its giving the following output.
[root@localhost ~]# /etc/init.d/named status
number of zones: 16
debug level: 0
xfers running: 0

query logging is OFF

tcp clients: 0/100
server is up and running
named-sdb dead but pid file exists
what does this named-sdb dead but pid file exists means ?
if i do telnet 192.168.0.19 53 from a remote machine its giving the following error.
telnet 192.168.0.19 53
telnet: connect to address 192.168.0.19: Connection refused
if i do telnet localhost 53 from the same machine where DNS is configured its connecting to port 53.
Why is it happening so ?
Whats wrong with my DNS configuration ?
Looking forward to hear from you
Thanks and Regards
