named is not running. Start named, and check that it started 'ps -ef | grep
named' If not, there should be something logged to indicate what the problem
is. Default system logs on Linux are in /var/log/messages. /var/adm/messages
for Solaris.

/var/run/ndc is the command channel that exists when it is running. If
resolution still works without named running, look at you're
/etc/resolv.conf file, and see where it is sending those queries.

Here is all the info I can give.
ndc status
ndc: error: ctl_client: evConnect(fd 3): Connection refused
ndc: error: cannot connect to command channel (/var/run/ndc)

There is no dir (/var/run/ndc) I checked

        directory "/var/named";
         * If there is a firewall between you and nameservers you want
         * to talk to, you might need to uncomment the query-source
         * directive below.  Previous versions of BIND always asked
         * questions using port 53, but BIND 8.1 uses an unprivileged
         * port by default.
        // query-source address * port 53;

// a caching only nameserver config
zone "." IN {
        type hint;
        file "named.ca";

zone "localhost" IN {
        type master;
        file "localhost.zone";
        allow-update { none; };

zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" IN {
        type master;
        file "named.local";
        allow-update { none; };

zone "icon-inc.net" {
         notify no;
         type master;
         file "icon-inc.net";

zone "13.79.66.in-addr.arpa" {
         notify no;
         type master;
         file 13.79.66";

also I have named running in levels 2,3,4,5.
Is this a good idea.

The funny thing is that name resolution is working just fine atleast
for my
zone icon-inc.net and I get info from root servers for this is the
only DNS I have set on my machine and I can surf OK.
I read some other post and it talked about checking the log file where
are they ( I AM A NEWBIE )
I'm am so close I can taste it. PLEASE HELP ME!!!
Do you need anymore info?
