Thanks for your reply. The reason I wanted to have two DNS servers is
because I want to register several domains and donŽt want to depend on an
external DNS service, but I found out the two DNS servers required by
Internic must be physically separated also, so IŽll have to ask someone else
to host my secondary DNS server, or stick with the available DNS options. I
just wondered if it could be possible to have two DNS servers inside a LAN,
behind a FreeBSD box with NAT.
