    Hi everybody. I did a new install on a debian 4 machine, but am a little confused on the dns settings.

    I am using dnsexit for my dynamic dns, so in a new install do I need to have the dns server enabled in server services?

    And if I need it running, do I use the 2 external dns server names in the dns server settings area or do I still use my own domain there?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    No, you dont have to run the DNS server if you dont want to use it.

    Thanks for quick reply

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    So just to clarify, I can turn off the dns service and I don't need to worry about changing the dns server names in the settings.

    Later, once I figure everything out, I would be able to turn these back on and I would have my own nameserver?
