Why do you want this to happen? Any specific reason. Its a way to check if a site is down or not.

I will help you out here. Make a copy of your original bind9 config; cp /etc/named.conf /etc/named.original.conf THEN... Use your favorite text editor, and open /etc/named.conf Find where it says options in the configuration file Right above options, put in the following & remember the xxx's should resemble in order, the IP for ns1 and then ns2 and then the 3rd IP could be your IP at home, or what ever; acl "trusted" { xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx; xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx; xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx; }; THEN.... Find where it says query-source address and below that put allow-recursion { trusted; }; allow-notify { trusted; }; allow-transfer { trusted; }; }; Save the config, and then restart bind. You're welcome

Yes this solution works ! Thank mate ! Now can i add in the acl a network like 10.8.0.0/24 so when i connect over my vpn and it gives me an ip in that range i can do nslookup to monitore and config my zone ?

Yup, I'm quite particular you can use CIDR notation

Yes, just make another xxx entry with the IP and CIDR xxx.xxx.xxx/xx
