How to use Openprovider nameserver as slave

Question

How to use Openprovider nameservers to host zones from another master server?

Answer

In order to use Openprovider nameservers as slaves, one has to configure Access Control Lists on the master nameserver to allow AXFR transfers from the following IP addresses:

185.203.73.190
185.27.175.218
2a00:f10:121:400:4be:60ff:fe00:526

To check whether or not Openprovider can read one's master server navigate to DNS management > DNS Checks and select button. Enter the domain name and the IP address of the master nameserver, to see the result of the check.

Last but not least, the zone file of the master nameserver should contain the NS record of Openprovider - ns1.openprovider.nl.

The interface of zone adding is almost the same as for the master ones. Navigate to DNS management > New DNS zone page in RCP and choose the appropriate type of the zone:

Once done with the name, proceed to next steps where you can configure the IP address of the master server:

The records will propagate within a couple of minutes.
