    first time i tried to start bind. should i make /etc/namedb or edit named.conf to look for named.ca in /etc?


    also, what is happening with this error could not listen on UDP socket: shutting down
    ?

    And for UDP port problem, it looks like port 53/UDP is blocked or eth0 is incorrectly bound to IP.

    Hi

    I am also facing the sane problem :-

    named has failed, please contact the sysadmin (result was "named is not running").

    Tried :-

    /scripts/fixndc
    /scripts/upcp --force
    /scripts/upcp
    /scripts/fixnamed

    Checked logs :- tail -f /var/log/messages ( nothing here either )

    Restarted the server too. but all in vein :(

    Can some one assist ?

    thanks

    I defined my named.ca file in /etc/named.conf as /var/named/named.ca


    just search for named.ca

    make sure the path is correct.
