We are trying to set up a nameserver for our IP-domain.
Our TCP-IP domain exists of a number of SUN workstations and a
large amount of UB NIU-130's and NIU-180's.

We want to use a SUN-4/280 as the root domain name server.
The only thing we want to do is use UB-NIU tcp telnet>>connect <hostname>
instead of telnet>>open <IP-Address> [port nr] ( = user unfriendly )
Currently we didn't succeed due to a problem in the named.db database ( ??)
We think we did all things right ....
{ as in the example in the SUN manual [RFC ....] }

Here the examples of the related files:
*** named.boot ***
;
; boot file for name server
;
domain ECN-NLERF
primary ECN-NLERF /etc/named.db

**** named.db ***
@ IN SOA ecn.ECN-NLERF. root.ecn.ECN-NLERF. (
                1.1 ;version
                3600 ;refresh
                300 ;retry
                3600000 ;expire
                3600 ) ;minimum
        IN NS ecn.ECN-NLERF.
localhost IN A 127.0.0.1
loghost IN CNAME localhost
ecn IN A 130.112.1.1
