Default Name Server and Web/Email server

HI,

I am new to linux and trying to find some help setting up a server at home. Please help ...

1. can I setup a server without a registered Domain Name? I have a no-ip address instead.

2. I don't have a file /etc/named.conf in /etc but there is named.caching-nameserver.conf is it the same?

3. How to setup the name mail server ? is it possible to setup the mail server with the no-ip name?

Please help

Thank you

Which distribution are you using? What's the output of
Code:
updatedb
locate named.conf
?

Yes, you can use the no-ip domain. Just point the no-ip domain to your router's public IP address and forward port 25 from your router to your mail server.

Thanks for the responce. Can you please tell me the instruction for Q1.

I installed Fedora 7 (I followed exactly the steps in perfect_server_fedora_7 except the ISPConfig) Now I installed the ISPConfig but since then I am not getting the login screen after boot-up. This is a new problem !

the output I get for locate named.conf is:
/etc/dbus-1/system.d/named.conf
/usr/share/doc/bind-9.4.2/sample/etc/named.conf
/usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/services/named.conf
/usr/share/man/man5/named.conf.5.gz
/var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf

for Q3 do i have to setup Dovecot, postfix and or anything else?

thank you

If you've used the "Perfect Setup" for Fedora 7, then all you have to do is replace server1.example.com with your no-ip address. That's all. The rest will be done by ISPConfig.

If you cannot access ISPConfig, try to restart it:
Code:
/etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart

You Can Config your own DNS Server , then you can config your Mail Server
About DNS , in RHEL 4 or 5 and CentOS 5 , Fedora 7 the Bind installed with Chroot so the named.conf is not in the /etc/ but you copy it from /usr/share/doc/bind-9.4.2/sample/etc/named.conf to the It's New Location /var/named/chroot /etc then you make your zones in /var/named/chroot /var/named
Then You build PowerFull MAil Server (Sendmail or Postfix ,dovocate ,Clamav ,MailScanner , Webmail )
