    I'm kinda new to MyDNS and i've got a couple of queries

    1. on the Howto page it says that you need 2 seperate Public IP addresses so it can run properly now i do have 2 IP available now this is how i went by setting it up

    2. added a new IP Address under/etc/network/interfaces and /etc/hosts
    i called it virtual IP (It is a Public IP )

    is this correct cause when i dig under my virtual ip i get a response and when i dig my created domain under status i get NXDOMAIN and if i try dig @Localhost -x 1st public IP it says connection timed out; no server could be reached

    Oh and i want to have 2 DNS servers does this mean (If i'm correct that i'll have to add the same virtual-ip to my second dns server won't it clash if that is so?

    Another thing if i don't include the second IP which i use for DNSCache on /etc/hosts and /etc/network/interfaces then i cannot ping it and get a response

    so my question is am i correct by including it there or am i just doing what bind does?

    /etc/init.d/networking restart
    What's the output of

    No, you must use another IP address!
