    Hi. I would need to create configuration for secondary nameserver.
    I would like to use to host my secondary nameserver.
    I also would like to implement some security to it.

    Would anyone give me a hint with this? I know how to change everything manualy, but ispconfig will change everthing back.

    Dont change anything manually. Just set the secondary DNS-Server to in the ISPConfig primary DNS record of your domain.

    I dont know if we uderstand each other?

    With ISPConfig setup I have now primary DNS server which host all DNS records for all hosts. I have to create slave DNS server as a backup. Without that I am not able to to point nameservers to ISPConfig server because one nameserver is not enough.

    Normally you have to add to the zone "allow-transfer { ip_address of slave DNS; };" To be able to transfer DNS records to slave DNS server.

    Plus the addition of NS in zone file as you mentioned.

    That is what I am looking for. Please advice. Thank you

    You don't have to change anything in named.conf. Zone transfers are allowed by default in the current setup.

    I have one IP. I use a service like No-IP to make my Secondary DNS Server. But now I have a friend with one IP too, and the same solution (No-IP).

    I have to only put the allow-tranfer {ip} and nothing more? And the zones in the named.conf? And files?

    Thanks all,
