http://serverfault.com – I want to configure bind9 to be a local DNS only with no internet access at all. So I have 5 PCs in my virtual domain xy.com. Within this domain there is no access to the internet. The DNS server has entries like: pc1.xy.com IN A 10.1.1.1 pc2.xy.com IN A 10.1.1.2 . . pc5.xy.com IN A 10.1.1.5 Bind is configured correctly but when I do a "dig @localhost pc1" on the DNS server it does not work because he gets stuck contacting the root servers. But I only want him to be local and to answer which IP pc1 has. How can I achieve this? (HowTos)
