DNS Master Zone entries

hi

I've setup Master DNS-Server BIND 9 on linux Debian Sarge
and it seems to work,
but I'm not sure if I've setup the Master Zone of this name server correctly.

short information:
ext.domain.net is the name of this name server
and domain.net is domain of this name server

I've done following using the webmin:

1.) first I've created a new reverse master zone:

zone "202.X.X.in-addr.arpa" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/202.X.X.rev";
notify yes;
allow-query { any; };
};

2.) next step, I've created a master zone for my dns server ext.domain.net:
zone "domain.net" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/domain.net.hosts";
notify yes;
allow-query { any; };
};

3.) I've opened the zone master zone: domain.net, clicked on Address and I've put the following:

ext.domain.net. Default 202.X.X.10
domain.net. Default 202.X.X.10
www.domain.net. Default 202.X.X.10

now I have:
$ttl 38400
domain.net.INSOAext.domain.net. postmaster.domain.net. (
1141342034
10800
3600
604800
38400 )
domain.net.INNSext.domain.net.
ext.domain.net.INA202.X.X.10
domain.net.INA202.X.X.10

I'll be very happy, if someone could check this entries and let me know.

greetings
cccc

1. If you're not 100% confident doing named.conf by hand, I suggest that you download and install Webmin. It has a very easy to use GUI for manipulating BIND's setup.

2. I suggest you read up on 'allow-query', 'allow-transfer' and 'allow-recursion'. You don't want world+dog to be able to use your DNS server as a recursive server, do you? You really do need to get these three entries right.

I did the zone entries using webmin

now I have:
zone "202.X.X.in-addr.arpa" {
type master;
notify yes;
file "/etc/bind/202.X.X.rev";
};

# vi domain.net.hosts

$ttl 38400
domain.net. IN SOA ext.domain.net. postmaster.domain.net. (
1141342035
10800
3600
604800
38400 )
domain.net. IN NS ext.domain.net.
ext.domain.net. IN A 202.X.X.10
domain.net. IN A 202.X.X.10

and reverse zone is:

# vi 202.X.X.rev
$ttl 38400
X.X.202.in-addr.arpa. IN SOA ext.domain.net. postmaster.domain.net. (
1141342019
10800
3600
604800
38400 )
X.X.202.in-addr.arpa. IN NS ext.domain.net.
10.X.X.202.in-addr.arpa. IN PTR ext.domain.net.

is it correct now?
