Using rndc is essentially a requirement in BIND 9, so we should really 
figure out where this is going wrong for you. Try running 'rndc status' 
and tell us what you see.

Also, if you have any rndc.conf or rndc.key files in the directory where 
named.conf is located, try moving them out of the way and running
'rndc-confgen -a -b256' then try 'rndc status' again.
