    Default Bind installation

    I am trying to install bind on my RHEL server to resolve the issues of mot receiving mails because i am behind an ISP's router and a firewall.

    I've ran these codes:
    yum install bind
    yum install caching-nameserver
    cp named.caching-nameserver.conf named.conf (because i dont have a file called named.conf after bind installation).

    touch mydomain.com.zone
    touch mydomain.com.rev.zone

    chown root:named mydomain*


    Can anybody tell me what next to do?

    Follow the examples in Split DNS - Zimbra :: Wiki though you should not require the necessity to install a caching-nameserver.

    Check /var/log/messages for any BIND error messages.

    Please post output from
    Code:
    cat /etc/hosts
    cat /etc/resolv.conf
    dig youdomain mx
    dig youdomain any
    host `hostname` <- note backticks and not single quotes
    Plus your BIND named.conf and the associated zone files.

    The simple answer is, you have no A or MX records for your server. Please check the Split DNS article again and follow those instructions.

    the Split DNS document is not clear enough,

    I cant find my named.conf file after the installation of Bind and even if i create a named.conf file,i would nt know what the contents will be.

    Is there any other documentation better or GUI configuration?

    Read, read and read again ... Quick HOWTO : Ch18 : Configuring DNS - Linux Home Networking

    Before proceeding understand how and why BIND works as it will help you in the future.
