I created a box to run ispconfig with the name (not real) box1.domain.com
then after all was installed I made a new site called domain.com and had the wizard create MX record and all other appropriate DNS entries. (MX is pointed to box1.domain.com)
***all same IP address
Now www work but testing email from outside I get:
Looking up IP address for box1.domain.com.
There is no A record for box1.domain.com..
First off did I mess up by naming the box in the same domain name the site is?
Anyway I figure I could add a CNAME box1 to www and all is well but that does not work.
I even tested making up a fictitious A record (which resolves from outside) but when I add a cname..that does not work either.
I went into the bind conf dir and looked at the PTR for that domain and the syntax was:
box1 CNAME www.
(including the period)
I tried a variety of ways taking off the period and adding the IN according to the bind how-to's.
Is there something I am missing or an easy way to just resolve box1.domain.com to the outside ?
Thanks in advance
