Hi Peter,

The ip address of 100.168.100.50 is not my 'real' ip address but I used it
to post here to the public. My real ip address is a valid one.

Also, I had to remove the 'recursion no' from my /etc/named.conf because I
was not able to access the Internet from lan so not sure if the
'allow-recursion' will take care of not allowing people from outside to use
my name server?

I also changed the above to only have the 100.168.100/24 ip block (btw, this
is not my real ip address...just use this for posting to here).

thanks,

SW
