Default Bind 'named.conf.options'

Hello,

Should we change the "Listen on " in the file named.con.options.
By default that indicates whether the loopback address 127.0.0.1.
I amend it to show my public IP address.
Example:

options {
directory "/var/cache/bind";

// If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
// to talk to, you may need to fix the firewall to allow multiple
// ports to talk. See http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/800113

// If your ISP provided one or more IP addresses for stable
// nameservers, you probably want to use them as forwarders.
// Uncomment the following block, and insert the addresses replacing
// the all-0's placeholder.

// forwarders {
// 0.0.0.0;
// };

auth-nxdomain no; # conform to RFC1035
listen-on { 127.0.0.1;};
listen-on { 88.xxx.xx.xxx;};
};

Thank you

Sincerely,

You can add a listen-on directive for your public IP if you want BIND to listen on your public IP.
