    Question My RAQ acting as a DNS server


    I have a RAQ3 which has been installed with a RAQ4 OS.

    I have purchased a domain name and it resolves to a holding page at Lycos. I would like to point the Domain to my RAQ, via my own DNS server on the RAQ. I have created the Virtual site on the RAQ and I have created three DNS records for the domain (Two A Records & one MX record).

    I have named my RAQ's host name as 'raq3', however I'm really confused. I can't seem to get my RAQ to resolve to a host name.

    On the Internet my router resolves to:

    <username>.<isp>.com. Can I get my DNS server to resolve to:


    I'm under the impression that I won't be able to point my domain, to the RAQ - if I can't even resolve my own DNS server, host name.

    If anybody could help, I would appreciate it.

    Does this make any sense? I'm confused.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your ISP controls DNS for their TLD, so no you wouldn't be able to do this unless you get them to delegate DNS for your subdomain to your raq.
