    Setting up Authoritative Name Servers using BIND

    Since getting a new job at a web hosting company as a technical support representative, I've been wanting to get some hands-on experience with DNS.

    What I'd really like to do is purchase a domain name from a registrar and set-up two authoritative name servers at home. I've downloaded and installed BIND on my Ubuntu box and fiddled around with it a bit, but I am a little unsure on how to go about setting it up as a authoritative name server.

    I'd imagine I would need two name servers, one primary and the other secondary. And also I would guess I'd need two static public IP address (get these from ISP?).

    If anyone could help set me in the right track, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks!
    Om.

    I have something for you not completely what you are looking for since I have only one DNS server setup. Please see this
    www.freetech.selfip.info/dns.php or you can alway use webmin and set DNS from there it is very easy + it has GUI as well
