recursion with ipv6 ?? - mike- - 2004-08-02

Hello everyone, i was wondering if you could help me out :b


Does anyone know how to setup their local nameserver to dns ipv6..

i've been playing for a while and its annoying me


I've put listen-on-v6 { any; }; in options

so it connects etc..

but it just says canno find nxdomain when i use nslookup......

now i dont know if im meant to put a zone file in the named conf that is meant to search the root servers and if i am, what is it?!


Let me know if ya got any ideas,

Nevermind i figured it out, For some reason Fedora Core 1 with default Bind 9.2.2-P3

has problems with dnsing ipv6..

Just upgraded to Bind 9.2.3 and it all worked okay


only options needed are listen-on-v6 { any; };
