Creating a public domain name server

By sbigelow ·
I have setup my DNS for domain naming and want to extend it outside my LAN so that I can host my own web server/mail server.

Here is my network logical layout.

DSL line to DSL Modem -- DSL Router (configured with IP assigned by ISP)

W2K AS DNS on private non-routable network with forwarding configured to ISP's NS's.

I've my InterNic domain name to point my dsl router and configured the router to pass dns requests to my dns server.

Will this work if? Will I need to have my ISP create a zone or a record that points to my dsl router?

I'm using a Linksys DSL router btw.

Creating a public domain name server

by Mikel~T In reply to Creating a public domain ...

Yes, you will need an ISP, or some sort of network provider to create a link to the host name you want and your IP....a free one is can register a domain name from one of their choices for free, and even update it via a client software they provide. It's great for FTP sites, and web servers.

Hope this helps.
