Thanks Jimmy

I may have found the answer to the first question also. I went to the BIND Manual and it does discuss "view". It does not give a specific zone file example for "internal" and "external" but it did show a snippet of name.conf for "view". The internal/external file declared in the zone(s) for in their snippet have the same name.

This leads me to believe the file used for the zone is the same for internal/external. Hoping I am learning something as I muddle through this I guess the views style mainly keeps anyone not declared in the acl {trusted} from generally wandering around your system.

I think that is why learning about DNS files has been the hardest to learn. I have googled many sites (I mean lots of sites!) and there are no two examples the same. I have pretty much figured out the RRs but which ones to use and not use has been the hardest part. It can be quite confusing sometimes. e.g. all examples found on the internet for name.conf in view have a different file name for the internal and external zone.
