I have been trying to get BIND to work on my Fedora 17 system to use as my primary DNS server. I was using dig with the IP address of that system to test and could not get it working. By fluke, I discovered that if I used localhost rather than the specific IP address of that machine (192.168.0.74), then everything worked. So for example, dig @localhost ibm.com works but dig @192.168.0.74 ibm.com does not work. I'm hoping someone can tell me how to fix this. Thanks in advance.
