To download the latest Linux kernel I point my browser to but the server is located at the Internet address of 184.108.40.206, I know which address I would prefer to remember.
The global DNS provides listings for publicly accessible addresses.
Information The steps in this post shows how to configure the DHCP server to automatically update the DNS records when giving out a new lease to a client computer. Before continuing These steps assumes that you already have a working copy of isc-dhcp-server and bind9 installed.
If you don’t have that I suggest that you first read my two other posts on how to install them: Setting up a DNS for the local network on the Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) server Setting up a DHCP server on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) server Step by step instructions Apparently the Ubuntu server is installed with an App Armor profile that prevents bind to write to the /etc/bind directory.
The Zone Type page displays where you choose the type of zone you want to create.
An external DNS server will also help limit the exposure of your network to security leaks in case the server is compromised.
The "." zone below tells named to check this file for a list of the root name servers, so it knows where to send external queries.
This enables the caching nameserver feature of BIND, by forwarding any unknown requests to the root nameservers listed in the file.
This chapter will provide the steps necessary to configure your own DNS server to assist in internal name resolution and to provide a caching service for external domains.
The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) software is installed on most Linux distributions, and is also available from the Internet Systems Consortium site.
