Hi Folks -

I have a name server that is not updating and propagating out DNS changes to the internet.

Below is my config file
Anybody see something wrong?


options {
directory "e:\\zones";
#listen-on port 53 {; };
#listen-on-v6 port 53 { ::1; };
pid-file "e:\\zones\named.pid";
memstatistics-file "e:\\zones\named_mem_stats.txt";
#allow-query { any; };
allow-recursion { any; };
recursion yes;
// Root Servers
zone "." IN {
type hint;
file "named.ca";
// Entry for Local Loopback
zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" IN {
type master;
file "named.local";
logging {
channel default_debug {
file "e:\\zones\named.run";
severity dynamic;

Hi TimothyPaul, first of all a warm Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

Your DNS config describes a configuration of a local computer. The addresses and ::1 are addresses which are assigned inside a computer and don't propagate to other DNS servers. If you want to make your computer accessible from the Internet, you have to add your entries to an upstream DNS server instead.

Hmm - I see your point. So what would a config file look like that was serving DNS for my hosting clients?
