Hello, it's a lot of time that i'm trying to configure and work a bind9
server correctly on a local network(instead of to use the /etc/hosts file)
The configuration, i'm quite sure is correct however it happens a strange
thing..
My dns server doesn't work..
it doesn't resolve the host names..

Here the named log:

I don't know what to do..
Somebody told me that the problem (perhaps) could be that one between "---"
->(Oct 23 17:33:28 andrea named[7512]:
> binding TCP socket: address in use).

it seems that the ports are used from an other service!!
But think that the number of the port change everytime that i start bind and
no one service interfere with this(ftp?)..
My network is so structured:
I have a router (with adsl modem) on the wan side and it joins the pc where
there is the dns server(with 2 lan cards and suse 9.1) and on the lan side
there are some pc with win-linux..
Thanks
bye Andrea.
