Hi Olivier Nicole
Tnx for ur quick response.
I'm very very new to both DNS and Freebsd.
Maybe I'm stupid because I already spent 3 days creating my zone file and reverse file
but I still can not sussefull.
I'm running FreeBSD 6.2, I have DynamicIP: www.thecuong.gotdns.com.
Could you help me to create the simple example of zone file and reverse file for me
for thecuong.gotdns.com so that I can learn from you?
I'm really really stuck.

Below is my named.conf:
options {
   directory    "/etc/namedb";
   pid-file    "/var/run/named/pid";
   dump-file    "/var/dump/named_dump.db";
   statistics-file    "/var/stats/named.stats";

   listen-on    { 127.0.0.1; 192.168.0.1; };

     forward only;

   forwarders {
       210.245.0.131;
   };

};

zone "." {
   type hint;
   file "named.root";
};
-------------------------------------------------------------------
And below is my localhost.rev:

;    From: @(#)localhost.rev    5.1 (Berkeley) 6/30/90
; $FreeBSD: src/etc/namedb/PROTO.localhost.rev,v 1.6 2000/01/10 15:31:40 peter Exp $
;
; This file is automatically edited by the `make-localhost' script in
; the /etc/namedb directory.
;

$TTL    3600

@    IN    SOA    localhost.localdomain. root.localhost.localdomain.  (
               20070713    ; Serial
               3600    ; Refresh
               900    ; Retry
               3600000    ; Expire
               3600 )    ; Minimum
   IN    NS    localhost.localdomain.
1    IN    PTR    localhost.localdomain.

Yes.

Forward DNS lookup: (alrw17.desktops.cs.ait.ac.th is dynamic DNS)
