    I installed Centos 5.5 and ISPConfig 3. All seems well except for dns. named-checkconfig and checkzone seem fine. The dns server will not answer it to any requests. I get connection timed out; no servers could be reached. I removed bind-chroot and reinstalled it but I am having no luck. I looked through all of the config files and they seem to be ok.

    Here is named.conf
    //
    // named.conf
    //
    // Provided by Red Hat bind package to configure the ISC BIND named(8) DNS
    // server as a caching only nameserver (as a localhost DNS resolver only).
    //
    // See /usr/share/doc/bind*/sample/ for example named configuration files.
    //
    options {
    listen-on port 53 { 127.0.0.1; };
    listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };
    directory "/var/named/chroot/var/named";
    dump-file "/var/named/chroot/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
    statistics-file "/var/named/chroot/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
    memstatistics-file "/var/named/chroot/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";
    allow-query { localhost; };
    recursion yes;
    };
    logging {
    channel default_debug {
    file "data/named.run";
    severity dynamic;


    I would appreciate any help I can get.

    I renamed named.conf and created new one and pasted the info from the guide and it still does not work.
    I stopped and restarted named with no luck. Is there something I need to do to tell bind to accept connections???

    // named.conf
    //

    // server as a caching only nameserver (as a localhost DNS resolver only).

    // See /usr/share/doc/bind*/sample/ for example named configuration files.
    //
    options {
    listen-on port 53 { 127.0.0.1; };
    listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };
    directory "/var/named/chroot/var/named";
    dump-file "/var/named/chroot/var/named/data/cache_dump.db";
    statistics-file "/var/named/chroot/var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
    memstatistics-file "/var/named/chroot/var/named/data/named_mem_stats.txt";
    allow-query { localhost; };
    recursion yes;
    };
    logging {
    channel default_debug {
    file "data/named.run";
    severity dynamic;
    };
    };
    zone "." IN {
    type hint;
    file "named.root";
    };
    include "/var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local";

    Have you followed the installation guide to the letter to install named? Just pasting the new content of the file is not sufficient.
