Following the HOWTO, I have setup a bogus domain for my LAN.
Everything works fine, except "nslookup" for my domain.
Here is a sample,
Addresses: 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124
*** localhost can't find lynix.com: Server failed
The domain "trynix.com" is a bogus domainname for my LAN.
During the nslookup, if I ask for trynix.com, I do not get anything.
If I ask for a specific hostname, I do get the IP address. I do have
the reverse lookup working fine.
For the real world domain names, such as CNN.COM, UMICH.EDU or
TIME.COM (and on and on), I do get the address of a host. When I put in
my domain TRYNIX.COM, I get
"localhost can't find trynix.com: Server failed"
Why is this happening? How do I make nslookup find my own bogus domain?
Thank you in advance for any solution.
