    Where do the MyDNS logs go, which file can they be found in?

    I setup MyDNS and set the log option to LOG_DAEMON.

    I did a 'cat messages | grep mydns' and found only a few Mydns log entries. Are there any other files which contains the logs?

    I setup transfer (using normal dns transfer , not replication) to another server, expecting to see some messages about attempts to transfer zones but found nothing. I have configured the secondary servers IP in the Zone Transfers field and set the allow fields as below, but nothing is happening.

    allow-axfr = yes # Should AXFR be enabled?
    allow-tcp = yes # Should TCP be enabled?
    allow-update = yes # Should DNS UPDATE be enabled?

    I am using 1.1.0 so I expect transfers to work.

    Any ideas at all?

    Please check the log files in /var/log.

    I configured the logs restarted the primary server, but the logs there are empty other than a problem with mysql not starting, which I fixed. Apparently mydns starts before mysql.

    What I am not sure of is whether the primary that contacts the secondary to send updates or whether it is the secondary that queries the primary for updates and the allow-xx and tcp settings that are required on both.

    Below is the secondary's log, none of them show any signs of attempting to send or receives updates:
