Hi! Nead help with DNS setup on OSX server


After what I understand, you nead to make changes in both the GUI and terminal.

Exactly what do you have to change, anyone got a step by step,

lets say I got host "example.com" and public IP: ""
and wanna run a DNS server on dns.example.com

I nead to create some zonefiles, and edit "db."
"db.(my ip)" and "named.conf"

How do I get it to work?

And how do I assign more then one nameserver on the same machine,
and still get the registration to work with RIPE.


In a macosx userforum, someone must have enabled and run a dns server from their machine.

Please tell me how you do it!

Don't be lazy...

Go to macosx.org

This site has all the info on setting up DNS in the terminal. Worked for me.
