[solved] bind named help
« on: February 02, 2011, 04:29:23 PM »

I was having difficulty finding information on the net about setting up bind to answer forward and reverse lookups for ipv6

so here is the relevant information about my bind settings that got it working for me.

named.conf
Code: [Select]
options {
listen-on-v6 { any; };
};
zone "L.K.J.I.H.G.F.E.D.C.B.A.1.0.0.2.ip6.arpa" {
 type master;
 file "/etc/bind/db.ip6";
};

db.ip6
Code: [Select]
$ORIGIN L.K.J.I.H.G.F.E.D.C.B.A.1.0.0.2.ip6.arpa.
$TTL 86400      ; 1 day
@  IN SOA  house.local. email.address. (
                                2011020201 ; serial
                                28800      ; refresh (8 hours)
                                7200       ; retry (2 hours)
                                2419200    ; expire (4 weeks)
                                86400      ; minimum (1 day)
                                )
   IN NS   myserver.house.local.
1.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0 IN PTR myserver.house.local.

now nslookup performs as follows
Code: [Select]
nslookup ABCD:EFGH:IJKL::1 ::1
Server: ::1
Address ::1#53

1.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.L.K.J.H.G.F.E.D.C.B.A.1.0.0.2.ip6.arpa name = myserver.house.local.

as I was expecting it in the first place

I found helpful info here http://www.secure-computing.net/wiki/index.php/IPv6_DNS
it helped googling for "bind 1.0.0.2.ip6.arpa"

Yeah, obfuscation doesn't help, can't troubleshoot without actual information, please provide specific details.
