New Install - Namerserver Failing
Hi, I have a new install with ISPConfig 3. I've only used ISPConfig 2 in the past and it has worked fine.

Everything on this one seems to be installed correctly using the tutorial for CentOS 5.5/ISPConfig 3.0.3. I create a client, then a website, then a DNS zone using the wizard. The subdirectories are created in /var/www/clients/client1 and everything looks like it should work.

But it doesn't. I get a message via OpenDNS that the nameservers are failing. I went back through the tutorial, went through the ISPConfig manual, no luck.

Any idea where I should start? The domain name I'm testing is, nameservers are set via Godaddy's panel to and, and those in turn point to the ip
