RE: Bind9 on Woody - "Bad dotted quad"
I thought of that. I replaced all the periods in "192.168.1.40" and then
re-typed it. Same error message. I put another line with a similar ip
address in front of it and got an error message on the new line. After
removing the new line I changed the "192" series ip number of a "12" series
number and bind swallowed that and choked on the next address record which
had a "192" address. I haven't had a problem like this with bind before but
I haven't used bind 9 either. I was hoping it was a compile option the
package maintainer used. I'll go back to the documentation again to see
what I can see.

You have checked you have full-stops (periods) on the end when you
should have and not when you shouldn't? Just a thought.
