I'm more familiar with Debian for DNS ... so I can't be too much help. The concept is the same, though.

Do you have two IP addresses? Maybe buy a Linode .. cheapest one, and use their DNS? They have a very sick control panel - ultra reliable. Or you could use them as a backup DNS by enabling zone transfers.

Which registrar are you using? I'll try to find some more information on how to setup a nameserver through your registrar and see maybe if we can get this going.

Ive setup Windows DNS many times to work with my domain, im guessing you only have 1 static IP so have you just set your name servers that you made at your Domain Registera with NS1 -> IP1 NS2 -> IP1?? You also been to make sure that you have your routors port open to that server! is your server directly on the network so it has 192.168.1.1 IP or does it have your external IP connected to it? You then need to create the Zone with the domain name, and then edit the properties and change your name servers and IP's i the config. Then you change the Primary Name server to the NS1 domain Also by the looks of it, you are linking the A records to your local IP's lets say you was wanting www.blabla.com you would make a arecord with www and link it to your EXTERNAL IP not your internal or people outside your network wontbeable to able to access without a VPN connetion


Hope this helped if you need anything else just ask

Well for example, if I started VPS hosting, how would I configure the DNS server to point to example "clientname.fedorait.net" and have port 3389 open on that VPS. How would I do that?

clientname.fedorait.net is just a A record on your domain. So what you want to do first is find out if the internet sees your nameservers as the authority for your domain. To do that open a linux shell and type:

Quote:
dig fedorait.net NS
What that does is it queries the DNS servers for what nameservers are the authority for your domain. If it's pointing to your nameservers, e.g. ns1.fedorait.net and ns2.fedorait.net then you're on the right track. If that's right you need to check what IP address your client is resolving to, from the commandprompt type:

Quote:
host clientname.fedorait.net
Replace clientname with your desired name. If it resolves then you're golden. If not, then your problem is with either your dns server's config(Are you using BIND?) or your firewall blocking requests. You can run from the shell:

Quote:
tail -f /var/log/messages
to see if you see any requests being dropped.

Well what would be easier to use, BIND or Windows DNS Server?

And thanks, that's really helpful information!

I use Windows, but you can use any depends on what your more used to tbh. If you wanted to link external users to certain servers and there was more than one person wanting access to RDP on different server, they would all need there own External static IP, This would then be linked to that Server so you could have a web server on each server if you wanted, that used port 80.

So you would first link the IP to the server (this would have to be purchased from your ISP / Datacenter) then you create a A record on your DNS Server so

Server1.fedorait.net -> 999.999.888.888

For example
