Hi there,

I have a problem with static IP resolving in bind 8.x!

I want bind to statically resolv to adresses without creating zone-files for
these IPs. How can I force bind to resolve e.g. -->

and vice versa ->

without having to create zone-files for I configured
nsswitch.conf (Linux System, SuSE) so that there is an entry

Hosts        files dns

but this doesn't work, Bind will not read the /etc/hosts File or does ignore
it. Am I doing anything wrong?

Thanks for your support in advance...
