I'm not sure what you mean by ns.onebm.com in the zonefile i've got
ns1.onebm.com and ns2.onebm.com in there is there somewhere else it's
meant to be.
Yes I am using the same ip address for both nameservers I know
everywhere advises not to but it works and I can't afford another
machine just for a secondary nameserver. I'm getting a second ip address
and will set up the second nameserver on that ip address but that will
also be on the same machine. Is that what people say should be done?
That PTR thing I seen it somewhere and put it in then things started to
work I havn't tried taking it out again. Will do soon if it's not required.
As you can see I really need to buy a book on bind but at the mo funds
Thank you for your help
