I've just started to try lochDNS (2.0.2). I'm using its VM version and I found it's quite good (though the start is quite confusing for non Linux experienced user) The only config I found missing is "recursive resolver". After searching everywhere on MyDNSConfig and reading a lot of tutorials, I think I've found the answer: 1. We have to go back to the console (Alt+F2), login as root and edit the file /etc/mydns.conf 2. Inside the file, we have to add the the recursive resolver IP address (eg the one provided by ISP) at "recursive =" field. 3. Reboot lochDNS server If there is a more intelligent method to do this, I'm open-hearted to listen.
