*This message was transferred with a trial version of CommuniGate(tm) Pro*
I have, as I said before, enabled recursion via the options in
when I run nslookup, it responds with the authoritative nameservers for
mydomain.name, regardless of the domain name i request. the "Name"
output is domain.name.requested.mydomain.name -- indicating to me that
mydomain.name is being appended to requests.
Whenever i run whois the output is "whois: com.whois-servers.net: No
address associated with hostname".
So, just for the hell of it, I tried setting my hostname to null ("" --
empty quotes), even though it could possibly foul up other services.
The results were the same.
Any help would be appreciated.
I'm lost as to what's wrong, as I've even taken a named.conf file from
a working server and replaced it, but to no avail.
