I am asking a very basic question Here?
In the Example described on Page 28 DNS and BIND 3rd Edition
Resolver query for giri.gbrmpa.goc.au
The query first goes to "." then to "au." then "gov.au" and then to
First Question : How does that First query goes to "." ?
What if I have specified "Forwarders" in my named.conf file ?
How does the query work , if it is given from the host
piripiri.finance.gen.au where gen.au and gov.au are same level zones
Second Question : What should gbrmpa.gov.au or gov.au server have in the
db.cache file ?
Should these servers also have the file downloaded from ftp.rs.internic.net ?
How does these root Serers work for the subdomains like gbrmpa.gov.au ?
Simmilarly on Page 31 ,
1.Nameserver A receives query from the resolver
2. A queries B ( How this works ? Which line in the Named.conf does this?
does "forwarders" is doing this function ? )
I am really confused about the concepts of "forwarders" and "root Server"
How does they work for subdomains like finance.gen.au and gbrmpa.gov.au ?
Thanks a lot for any clarifications !!
