DNS not, err, DNSing?

    Hi...

    DNS seems not be be servicing up queries for me ?

    smalltalk.fi has DNS serviced by two external DNS servers (for the DNS hosting thing).

    nserver: dnstemp-a.terva.net [OK]
    nserver: dnstemp-b.terva.net [OK]


    and these are (for now) mapped by the firewall to the same ISPCONFIG box by their two external IP numbers (for testing). I have then opened DNS port 53 on the firewall.

    For a domain, I have then two different subdomains setup (for some planned thing) yet externally nothing seems to work and even internally one domain is not seen as working when I try.

    Internally even: nslookup.

    > torr.smalltalk.fi
    Server: 192.168.0.1
    Address: 192.168.0.1#53

    Name: torr.smalltalk.fi
    Address: 192.168.0.95
    > 1.smalltalk.fi
    Server: 192.168.0.1
    Address: 192.168.0.1#53

    ** server can't find 1.smalltalk.fi: NXDOMAIN


    Yet they are set up in the ISPconfig DNS as A record.

    A Record
    IP-Adresse Hostname
    85.134.36.141 test.smalltalk.fi
    85.134.36.141 torr.smalltalk.fi
    71.237.246.195 1.smalltalk.fi


    What am I doing wrong :(

    Many thanks, Darren

    Code:
    dig @dnstemp-a.terva.net smalltalk.fi
    is working for me, but I can't resolve torr.smalltalk.fi and 1.smalltalk.fi. What's in the smalltalk.fi zones file? Is BIND running? Any BIND errors in your syslog?

    Hi. All services are allegedly running and in the zone file I have (under DNS entry, records and just below where you put in A records).

    IP-Adresse Hostname
    85.134.36.141 test.smalltalk.fi
    85.134.36.141 torr.smalltalk.fi


    (this is the external address for obvious reasons, otherwise noone would be able to connect in).

    ingra124:~ # cat /var/log/syslog
    cat: /var/log/syslog: No such file or directory
    ingra124:~ # tail /var/log/syslog
    tail: cannot open `/var/log/syslog' for reading: No such file or directory
    ingra124:~ #

    Hi. Am using ISPCONFIG (latest version as of late Dec 07).

    ingra124:~ # tail /etc/named.conf

    zone "smalltalk.fi" {
    type master;
    file "pri.smalltalk.fi";
    };

    There are some dots missing. It must either look like this:
    Code:
    test.smalltalk.fi[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B]       A       85.134.36.141
    torr.smalltalk.fi[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B]      A       85.134.36.141
    1.smalltalk.fi[B][COLOR="Red"].[/COLOR][/B]       A       71.237.246.195
    or like this:
    Code:
    test       A       85.134.36.141
    torr     A       85.134.36.141
    1      A       71.237.246.195
    I think you entered test.smalltalk.fi in the Host field in ISPConfig instead of just test.

    Thanks. I have tried to look at this and despite being able to telnet in and restart the machine, ispconfig no longer answers on port 81 (yet it does on port 80 if you go via IP where it says it is a shared server). Need to sit down with this as there is no internal firewwall in the way.

    If you get the shared IP page, then the apache server works fine, you just selected the wrong IP address for the website in ISPConnfig.

    The ISPConfig interface on port 81 is running according to the output above, try to connect to it trough the IP address and not the hostname.

    I mean it is not letting me login into https://www.domain.com:81 to admin ispconfig (despite I can ssh in) and Apache works to let me see the shared account web page. I have reset machine via SSh but need to go and power cycle and see. Very odd as it worked last time but don't know if anything has happened as machine is not in the same room as me.

    Something odd has happened to the configuration it seems or I have forgotten something patently obvious.

    I believed the login was https and port 81.

    Safari can’t open the page “https://sh1.terva.net:81/” because it could not connect to the server “sh1.terva.net

    Safari can’t open the page “https://sh1.terva.net/” because it couldn’t establish a secure connection to the server “sh1.terva.net”

    http://sh.terva.net goes to the "shared server alert".

    Safari can’t open the page “http://sh1.terva.net:81/” because it could not connect to the server “sh1.terva.net

    ssh to same IP number as sh1.terva.net maps to INTERNALLY is ok

    woof:~ di$ ping sh1.terva.net
    PING sh1.terva.net (192.168.0.95): 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.95: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.192

    All after a power reset.

    Any clues please :)

    Hi ... this is very, very odd.. Wonder if the 10.5.2 version of Safari/OSX has broken something on the Mac as if I open the link with Opera it goes straight through. Apologies for the confusion. I will now go and fix things.

    Could I make a humble suggestion in ISPCONFIG to notice if stupid people like me try and enter a fqdn in such fields and tell them not to be so stupid ?

    Thanks again
