MyDNS as slave DNS server?

    I don't know MyDNS, so:
    I would like to use Ispconfig as master dns server and MyDNS server on different location as slave (second and third) dns servers for approx. 200 domains. Is that possible?

    Thanks, David

    No, you can't use MyDNS as a BIND slave. Normally you use two MyDNS server and enable database replication between the two so that the slave gets all the modifications from the master, but because BIND isn't database-based, this doesn't work here...

    is there any automated database replication? currently i'm using crontab with mydnsimport to pull the zone files from ns1.

    my first try setting MyDNS as master and BIND as slave also failed. it says that connection refused. i've set allow-transfer in bind but still not working. any work around there?

    thanks in advance.

    You must allow zone transfers on the master (MyDNS).
    Please set
    allow-axfr = yes
    in /etc/mydns.conf.
