    Yea Im still new to all this server arena i call it...

    anyway..

    http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=www.blablablablaaaaaaaaaa.com

    shows me I have 2 red errors. (which is good compared to other guys)
    -----------------------
    FAIL Open DNS servers
    ^ Im finding this extremely difficult to fix (google answers and nothing.. maybe I didnt search hard enough!)

    FAIL
    Reverse DNS entries for MX records
    -----------------------
    We run a LINUX machine...
    I do have SSH access (I use putty) -> recommend another program besides this please..

    Please do tell me how fix those 2 errors... so noone can know anything about my servers or whatever.

    MY GOAL and MISSION is to have everything GREEN (on that DNS Report site)... yellows ok i guess.. long as its not RED

    That link should help you... Just remember to backup your named file before saving changes



    You'll need to ask your datacenter or your dedicated server provider to setup the rDNS for you.

    what I did was I SSH'd to named.conf / edit named.conf

    and added recursion no; under statistics-file "var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
    SO.......
    -------------------
    statistics-file "var/named/data/named_stats.txt";
    recursion no;
    -------------------
    rebooted BIND / and went to dnsstuff.com and it said OK / PASS :)


    Now.. I do have another question.. Im looking to actually view files from SHH in a NOTEPAD INSTEAD... it will be more easier for me.. but I dont know how to do that.. :(

    Trickey..... What editor do you use? vi is the most common, but takes a bit of learning. pico & ed is easier (though many tutorials will cover vi) alternatively, I use Eversoft's Frontpage 2006 (while in Windows), or Quanta + in Linux, and both have FTP capabilities, even SSH capabilites, so you could literally download the file to your desktop, edit as you please, and upload. It's slower though, so it depends on what you need todo.

    If your server is secured a bit, chances are you can't SSH into it as root, and have a dedicated user for it, via which you sudo everythying, in this case it might not work. Never compromise security for ease-of-use
