DNS -- Configure a caching-only name server to forward DNS queries

Hot on the heels of my previous post comes this one. Assuming that you have followed the previous post simply, add the following lines to your /etc/named.conf file in the options section (change the ip address to whatever you dns server is):
forwarders {;};
forward only;
Restart the bind daemon and off you go.

Note that since we are actually forwarding name queries, there is no need to modify the /var/named/ file, like I had to do in the previous post.
