I have a bind server setup on my mac OS lion,
And I have a few domains like myproject.com point to the same server using the configurations here:
I have a few windows machines in my LAN, I have setup their DNS server addresses as follows
Preferred DNS Server 192.168.2.25 << my server's IP Alternative DNS Server 192.168.2.1 << my Router
Here is a screenshot of my windows preferences,
Everything works as expected, when I ping myproject.com from my windows machine, it resolves to 192.168.2.25
Now the problem is, the server itself is not configured to use it's own DNS, so when I ping myproject.com it resolves to 188.8.131.52 which is the actual IP address of myproject.com on Internet.
Here is a screen shot of how I have tried to setup the server to use it's own DNS server in System Preferences -> Network -> Ethernet -> Advanced -> DNS
What am I doing wrong here? Is there a way to make this server look at it's own DNS first and then look at the router's DNS when trying to resolve a domain name?
gateway.2wire.net is the default value for search domains.
Thanks, Any help is appreciated
