Subject Re: [users@httpd] Is it possible to configure two subdomains for an IP address?
Date Thu, 19 Mar 2009 07:29:33 GMT
ewww god bind even allows it ugly ugly ugly

in /etc/bind/named.conf I added a ipaddress as a domain and was able
to use it like expected.

zone "127.0.0.1" {
        type master;
        file "/etc/bind/test";
};

test.127.0.0.1. IN      A       127.0.0.1

and an nslookup worked as expected

nslookup test.127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1
Server:         127.0.0.1
Address:        127.0.0.1#53

Name:   test.127.0.0.1
Address: 127.0.0.1
