DNS set-up

Were able to set-up and configure Web,File and DHCP Services except for the
DNS set-up. Isn't it that to set up dns, we have to use BIND? In Web
Services, we were able to view the default page using the servers IP
address, our client wants to view it using or typing the address for example
www.company.com, how do I do that?

I tried using the Terminal Utility but everytime I type /etc/named.conf I
encountered "permission denied" error, I logged-in as root but its still the
same error was encountered.

Thanks ,

You can't just type "/etc/namec.conf", it is a text configuration file, not a program. Try using vi or another editor to modify it.

I recommend using djbdns instead of BIND. It was written with security in mind (BIND has a long history of security problems), and (IMO) is easier to manage. You can get it from http://cr.yp.to
