This prevents any conflicts with other UUCP and Internet sites around the world.
This helps prevent problems when new networks come online.
This helps people maintain an accurate picture of what links are currently operational, as well as allowing hubs to avoid the need for static routes.
msend is a very convenient connectionless protocol. It is better than email for short questions and comments, and since it uses UDP by default it continues to work even when there are problems with TCP. It is quite widely supported within the APANA network.
nameserver <blah-address> nameserver <another-address> nameserver 126.96.36.199 domain apana.org.auThe extra nameserver addresses listed above provide alternatives if the first name server in the list is unavailable. See resolver(5).
If you're running a local named (see below - "secondary named") your own machine obviously runs the closest named, so the first nameserver entry in your /etc/resolv.conf should be:
nameserver 127.0.0.1or equivalent.
directory /etc/namedb ; ; type domain source file or host ; primary localhost localhost primary 0.0.127.in-addr.arpa localhost.rev ; only include the following secondary entries if your site is the main ; nameserver for your region (e.g. cleese in Adelaide, sydgate in Sydney, ; ogre in Brisbane). secondary apana.org.au 188.8.131.52 secondary/apana secondary 107.188.192.in-addr.arpa 184.108.40.206 secondary/107.188.192.in-addr.arpa secondary 88.12.202.in-addr.arpa 220.127.116.11 secondary/88.12.202.in-addr.arpa secondary 89.12.202.in-addr.arpa 18.104.22.168 secondary/89.12.202.in-addr.arpa secondary 90.12.202.in-addr.arpa 22.214.171.124 secondary/90.12.202.in-addr.arpa forwarders your.nearest.named.site ; (n/a, if your site is the main ; server for your region) forwarders 126.96.36.199 ; (generally a good idea) cache . root.cacheMake sure you create the directories /etc/namedb and /etc/namedb/secondary. localhost should be placed in /etc/namedb:
