    How to setup a forwarder with some exceptions


    I'd like my dns to forward all queries except a list of local addresses.

    I have bind 9.2.2 running on a server. This name server is setup as
    forwarder. In the future it may be authoritative on a zone too. I'd like to
    override some specific addresses, from zones I don't administer.

    The addresses to override are for example something like
    mail.domain-a.com, www.domain-b.net. When bind receive a query on these 2 entries it must not forward them but return an address which is locally defined (and may change).

    Any solutions ?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you want to override all queries for domain-a.com and domain-b.net then create a zone for each of them and enter the specified information. If you don't want to override the entire zone, you may create a zone for mail.domain-a.com and www.domain-b.net specifically.
    Send me a private message if you would like me to setup your DNS for you for a price of your choosing. This is the preferred method if your DNS needs to be fixed/setup fast and you don't have the time to bounce messages back and forth on a forum. Also, check out these links:
