Hosted OS X Mountain Lion Server Part 6: DNS

Mountain Lion Server

In this screencast I cover the DNS Service in Mountain Lion Server. DNS is the most critical service that must be functioning correctly if all the other services are going to work in OS X Server. If you have your own registered domain name, you will want to make sure it is pointed at your public IP address so all the traffic is directed to your server. To help you get DNS set up and running correctly I cover various aspects of DNS in a hosted environment including:

  • What each DNS record means.
  • How to change your DNS settings.
  • How to point your registered domain to your static IP address.
  • How to check to make sure your DNS is working properly once you have it all set up.

This should get you up and running with OS X Server. If you have any comments or questions feel free to leave them in the comments section below.
