Creating your own DNS Servers
I'm trying to run my own nameservers off 2 different vps's. I was looking at PowerDNS to do this and i've followed the tutorials I've found online but I always get stuck at the last hurdle.
I can't seem to get the master / slave to achieve comms (i'm assuming there is an IPTABLES step that people are leaving out in their guides?).
I also can't seem to do a dig e.g. dig @localhost mydomain.com - it simply refers to Google's DNS and looks there (no matter how many times I edit resolv.conf and tell it not to check external DNS).
Any idea's / tips etc? I'm struggling a bit with something that in my mind should be a relatively easy install (apart from security and hardening etc).
I'm using Ubuntu LTS releases.
