In this video, Chaim Krause verifies the zone file is set up correctly, by querying the name server from a client on the local network. Learn how dig is used to query a specific name server.
- [Instructor] I'm now going to…change the configuration of our…name server to accept queries from our local networks.…Let's look at what our present configuration is.…We're listening only on port 53 on our localhost.…And if we look at the allow query line,…it's also limiting it to localhost.…So nothing is going in except for queries from localhost.…We need to change that so we can…accept queries from outside.…
One of the problems though,…is if we change this globally,…then eventually we're going to get to the point…where we let everybody in,…and we'll have no security.…What we're going to do to partition off…our name server is use views.…And I've created a file that already has that in.…So we'll go ahead and we'll…take a look at what that file has.…Here's the changes we're going to make.…First change is listen-on port 53 gets changed to any.…
So we're opening up all of our ports…on all of our homes to accept queries.…Doing the same thing for IPv6.…We've got allow query as localhost here.…And this is going to be our general configuration,…
