    You might already know this, but a semicolon (;) is used to separate each segment in the PATH variable. So you would tack on a semicolon at the end of the existing PATH value before appending the new segment, "C:BINDDNSBIN".

    That should be "nslookup", not "ns1lookup". You also need to determine where your BIND executables are and add that location to your PATH variable in "Control Panel > System and Security > System > Advanced system settings > Environment Variables". Since you installed BIND in C:BINDDNS, your executables should be in C:BINDDNSBIN. The WOW64 issue I mentioned is not relevant in your case, since you didn't try to install in C:WindowsSystem32dns, the default installation location.

    One thing that will frustrate you if you aren't aware of Windows idiosyncrasies: BIND is a 32-bit program, so if you install it on 64-bit Windows under the default directory of C:Windowssystem32dns, it will actually get installed, *silently*, under C:WindowsSysWOW64dns. If you go looking for BIND under system32dns, you won't find it. You should also add C:WindowsSysWOW64dnsbin to your PATH variable so you can run the BIND programs.

    I've just gotten 6 minutes or so into the video and am still watching, but there are a lot of missteps already. At first, I thought they were intentional, to show viewers the missteps followed by the correct steps. But, clearly the demonstrator is unclear on some things, and keeps running up against the same wall. There is no need to create a "named" account; this installation program will create one automatically. Also, you can choose a password here; you don't need to go to user accounts.

    1) I made this video as part of my learning.
    2) When I made this video I didn't record the audio because of a simple reason i don't have a microphone during that time.
    I posted this in youtube for my reference. In future if I forgot how to setup BIND, i can easily refer to this video if it is in you tube.
    This video was made for myself.

    @nara1simha2 Thanks for the response. I realized that I made a typo

    listen-on {and;};

    so once I changed it to {any:}; I thought I had the problem fix //wrong

    After that the program just completely crashed!'

    so I started it with the g option // c:binddnsbinstart named -g

    I saw it tried to listen to my 53 port but crashed.. still don't know why but lucky I was just testing on my laptop. Following your same instructions on my server it worked perfectly! Thanks great video!!!

    @cnotation I was not quite sure why the DNS server was not bind to the port 53.
    If named-checkconfig & named-checkzone commands returns positive response, then you are good to start the BIND DNS servers with out issues.
    Do you have any firewall installed in you PC other than windows firewall?
    "netstat showed the listening port open" – what do you mean by this.
    Could you please paste the results of netstat -an | find "53" over here.

    Hey @nara1simha2 Nice video. I was following along just fine till i started bind

    //start bind.exe -f

    netstat showed the listening port open

    but UDP port 53 wasn't up… checked the firewall.. everything validated.. any idea what could be the problem?

    @nara1simha2 What if you are using DNS from google (8.8.8.8) Would that work?
