Server :: SOA For Nameserver Can't Be Retrieved, Possible Port Or BIND Misconfiguration?

Aug 24, 2010

My configuration: CentOS in a VPS environment, I have 2 static IPs at my disposal.I'm having trouble setting up my nameservers. I've registered the nameservers with my registrar and supplied the GLUE records, however my registrar has not yet applied this information into the DNS zone, because my nameservers fail to generate a response on port 53.DNS check says the following about my nameserver address:Checking SOA records for domain. Domain server is not answering to UDP requests on port 53. Possible problems: A firewall is blocking port 53, server is down, server is not running software for handling dns requests.So the only two possibilities I see is that my port 53 is somehow blocked or not properly set to accept and send the correct traffic or that I've misconfigured BIND.

CentOS 5 Server :: BIND DNS - Verify Query Replying Nameserver

Sep 3, 2010

How do I know the reply was from caching-nameserver, master nameserver or slave nameserver in BIND DNS.? Can I trace the nameserver that replied my dns query? Like I have a master nameserver, a slave nameserver and a caching nameserver in my network. Is it possible to know that which of these servers replied my dns query? Also can i trace back that replying server exactly?

recently we decided to make our own panel (like Plesk or cPanel) but for Ubuntu and it will be licenced under GPL (like any other professional sofware).want to make a panel not only that fits our needs but also the needs of other system administrators and domain owners. We researched other panels and found out that non of them has security/look/ease of use in one package. Bad codig is another problem found in other panels.I made a short overwiev of what I think we have to have in the beginning.I Security :1.

CentOS 5 :: Bind-chroot Missing / Get That Back?

Dec 15, 2010

I have been a BSD guy for years, but I am now shifting over to CentOS for my first server build.

So far so good, all has been relatively painless and in fact a heck of a lot simpler than I anticipated!

Everything seems to have gone ok except a small problem with Bind. At some point during setup, I accidentally ran "yum remove bind-chroot".

When I tried to run "yum install bind-chroot" I got told "No package bind-chroot available" which was odd.

Anyway, I managed to find the rpm for bind-chroot and installed it that way. Now I see that there is a bind update available

Unfortunately the rpm I installed now has a dependency for the current version of bind which I can see being a headache everytime bind needs updating.

So, can anyone help me get back bind-chroot the proper way? code...

Server :: Hostname Configuration On BIND

Jan 2, 2010

I have read a lot of documentation but it is still hard to find a proper answer to my doubts.About the hostnames in a domain, how is it associate to a determinated port?

For example, when I type on the browser and then I get redirected to the port of 20000 of this same domain. Fine, but how does it work that it knows it should be redirected to the port 20000? From where is this information (the association webmail-port 20000) taken? The apache will manage this, right? But what about other services like ftp?Another example, If I wrote my own software listening, let's say on the port 40000 and I want to have a domain like "" how would I let it be redirected to the port 40000 ?

Server :: Best Script For Managing Bind?

Feb 22, 2011

Currently i using webmin,but it missing some important things like $variable -where $variable would be automatically replaced with added domain,and it's kind a strange since plugin for managing other dns server on webmin does that. Also i was not able to generate 100% correct all records,only partial,which make it useless since i was need to fully replace it anyway.So can someone recommend any script/tools for it?I would be even happy with combination of batch tools(which might be even best solution since then i would not need to bother with installing script). How my dns records look:

PHP Code:
$ttl 38400
@    IN    SOA root.localhost. (

Server :: BIND Refuses Queries ?

Feb 15, 2010

I am currently running the latest version of Bind, and for some completely unknown reason I can NOT get queries to work for PTR records. All queries to the servers for reverse name lookup get query denied:

Using domain server:

Host not found: 5(REFUSED)

And it shows in my logs:

I am at my wits ends with the piece of crap. Can anyone shine some light on why this damn Bind install won't respond to these queries?

For reference here is my named.conf:

I am trying to set up a raid set on my computer but I have run into a small problem. it seems that the sata_promise driver is not loaded until after the md: bind has been performed. This means that my raidset will be missing some of it's discs and fail to start.

Is there any way to have the sata_promise drivers load earlier in the boot process?(more details can be found in my other post)

Ubuntu Networking :: Internal DNS Server With BIND ?

Basically, i want to be able to type a domain in my browser e.g. and it direct to the ../www/default folder on the Ubuntu Server on my network. The reason being is that as a web developer i have a number of sites that i'm working on locally and i'm getting tired of adding the domain to my hosts file and then creating a virtual host in Apache - i believe this can be done with BIND - is this right? If so what steps are required?

Ubuntu Servers :: Bind-server With SQL In The Repositories?

Jun 19, 2011

I need a bind-server (I mean DNS server) with a SQL backend. As far as I have seen, the only viable option I have is to recompile bind9 with support for either MySQL or PostGre.

Link to this: [URL]with an additional

apt-get install libpqxx3-dev

From some tutorials I have read, I see I need to recompile it to enable its SQL support.

But when I do it that way, I won't get any security updates, won't I?

So... Is there any bind server with SQL support in the repositories ? For that I don't have to worry about security updates...
