Hello,

I am slowly trying various features of FBSD and I have just enabled named
to be my local caching DNS server.  It works fine but I have one question.
I would like it to be a caching DNS server for my LAN. 

So following the Handbook I tried setting a proper LAN IP address of the
named machine:

listen-on { 192.168.11.50; };

However, when I restart named, it does not want to work (no DNS then). The
handbook suggests that when I want a caching server only, I should not
touch zones.

Any hint what I need to do to make it work for my LAN?

Thank you in advance!
