    I am a newbie in Linux.

    I have Fedora 13 OS 32 bits.

    I am working with PowerDNs and Poweradmin.

    How can I configure this with PowerDNS?

    1. Allow localhost recursion but deny recursion to external clients.
    Is there a tutorial for that?

    2. Set up cache nameserver for localhost (like caching-nameserver in Bind).
    Is there a tutorial for that?

    3. My Master Server with PowerDNS is working well from localhost
    but external clients cannot access it.

    I have iptables with these rules:

    :INPUT DROP [0:0]
    :FORWARD DROP [0:0]
    :OUTPUT ACCEPT [0:0]

    # Keep state.

    # PowerDNS for external clients
    -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -p udp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT
    -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -p tcp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT

    # Loop device.
    -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT


    Are they ok? Should I add something else in iptables?
