How much configuration can I do on named.conf?  I would like to add query-source and listen-on address in named.conf so I can bind DNS to the loopback addresses.

The named.conf file cannot be modified directly, but it can be modified via the NIOS GUI.


You can set the listen-on via these steps:


  1. From the Data Management tab, select the DNS tab and click the Members tab -> member check box -> Edit icon.
  2. In the editor, click Toggle Advanced Mode.
  3. When the additional tabs appear, click the Advanced subtab of the General tab.
  4. Add the IP in "Listen on these additional IP addresses"

The "query-source" directive is covered in the same location by picking the correct interface from the "Send queries from" drop-down.
