Writing the Master Files

Figures-gif, gif, gif, and gif give sample files for a name server at the brewery, located on vlager. Owing to the nature of the network discussed (a single LAN), the example is pretty straightforward. If your requirements are more complex, and you can't get named going, get ``DNS and BIND'' by Cricket Liu and Paul Albitz ([]).

The named.ca cache file shown in figure-gif shows sample hint records for a root name server. A typical cache file usually describes about a dozen name servers, or so. You can obtain the current list of name servers for the root domain using the nslookup tool described toward the end of this chapter.gif
