Hi list,

I have got the following issue. I have added the following settings in
named.conf but am unable to get it working. If I read the man page it
seems that what I have put in is completely correct.

REason to put it in is that I want the DHCP server to automatically update
the DNS zone.

the error I get is:

Nov 30 14:09:31 hulk named[6848]: reloading configuration failed: failure
Nov 30 14:09:45 hulk named[6848]: /etc/namedb/named.conf:20: expected
'allow' near ';'
Nov 30 14:09:45 hulk named[6848]: reloading configuration failed:
unexpected token

head -n 25 /etc/named/named.conf
# generated with dnssec-keygen -a HMAC-MD5 -b 128 -n USER DHCP_UPDATER
        algorithm HMAC-MD5.SIG-ALG.REG.INT;
        secret hashedstring==;

acl "home" {;;};

options {
        // Relative to the chroot directory, if any
        directory       "/etc/namedb";
        pid-file        "/var/run/named/pid";
        dump-file       "/var/dump/named_dump.db";
        statistics-file "/var/stats/named.stats";
        allow-query     {"home"; };


controls {
        inet port 953;
allow {;; } keys { "DHCP_UPDATER"; };

Line 20 is where controls start.

Any help much appreciated.
