I set up a domain forwarding record in WHM. When I go to the domain, I see:

The server can not find the requested page:

subd.domain.net/domainnotknown.html (port 80)

Please forward this error screen to subd.domain.net's WebMaster.
What is the problem, exactly? Why isn't WHM putting in this page where it belongs? The domain forwarding doesn't work and fails with an Apache page.

Another hint.... on the top of the forwarder, it says the following. However, this is not the IP address which WHM uses by default to set up new domains. Why is it giving me this one instead of .5 which is the one that is stock when you setup a new domain?


The domain forwarder is currently using the IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.8. All domains that you want to be forwarded should resolve to this IP.
Domains resolving to any IP other than xxx.xxx.xxx.8 will not be forwarded.
