I ftp'ed the entire archive of mailing lists and grep'ed for root.cache and
only two articles showed up and they were not that clean on the topic....so
I am going to de-lurk and ask:
InternalDNS has 'forwarders' that point to ExternalDNS
and my ExternalDNS box has the /etc/resolv.conf that points to InternalDNS box.
OK so far...
My question is what do I put in my InternalDNS's root.cache?
If I leave it the way it is with the current root.cache from
RS.INTERNIC.NET the InternalDNS server is trying to send .domain messages
to those IP's and gets blocked by my CHOKE router.
There was a posting in the archive that spoke of doing a:
>Set up your internal root servers with a primary directive, and your
>secondaries with a secondary directive, then load the root cache
>(named.ca) file with the NS and A records for the dns server on the

>. 999999 IN NS firewall.my.org.
>; Prep the cache (hotwire the addresses). Order does not matter
>firewall.my.org. 999999 IN A 22.214.171.124
but will I need to do this for a .COM, .NET, .EDU .etc.etc??????
I must be missing something here.
What should the root.cache be on my InternalDNS server?
If this is listed any where, just point me to it so that we can keep the
traffic down on this list.
