Question DNS Questions...

Hi there!

I recently tried many times to install and configure a web server, but all over in failures... But thats other question...

My question now is, how can I configure the DNS? I've bought a domain name, and there I've to put one name server at least, but I don't know what to put there... If I put my ip address, in this case: 217.129.173.164 it didn't accept it, but if i put my hostname : cb-217-129-173-164.netvisao.pt it accept it, but it doesn't work...

For example, my domain name is osiriscomplex.net, what I have to do to create the name server, can i use my hostname instead? What about the records? What I have to do?

Thanks in advance... and excuse my bad english (I'm portuguese)

Delegation looks ok:
host -t ns osiriscomplex.net
osiriscomplex.net name server cb-217-129-173-164.netvisao.pt.

But trying to retrieve records from your NS doesn't work:
host -t ns osiriscomplex.net 217.129.173.164
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

It would appear that there's no name server running at 217.129.173.164:

nmap 217.129.173.164

Starting nmap 3.55 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2006-03-13 19:59 EST
Note: Host seems down. If it is really up, but blocking our ping probes, try -P0
Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (0 hosts up) scanned in 12.084 seconds

Got port 53 open and name server running running on that machine?

Thumbs up

Thanks for your help falko!

I bought managed DNS for my domain. Later I created the A records, and the MX record.

the osiriscomplex.net domain is already working, but another A record I have created, is only working at my localhost ( isis.osiriscomplex.net )...

I don't know if I did the right things, but now I have this resolved for some time. I have to read with more time the Traditional DNS How-to.

Thanks!

Unhappy

I'm lost! ... My domain seems to be in 2 servers... I think it's because of the name servers...

I created 2 NS records at the managed dns service, and the target is my IP (is it?), next, I try to change the name servers for that domain, and I put there 2 name servers, ns1.osiriscomplex.net and ns2.osiriscomplex.net, but it gives me an error, something like: NameServer ns1.osiriscomplex.net is not a valid Nameserver

What can I do?... Is there some step by step tutorial, explaining how can I create the name servers, and so on?...

Thanks for all the help

You must create A records for ns1.osiriscomplex.net and ns2.osiriscomplex.net. They don't exist yet:

Code:
