OpenVPN and BIND Issue
Hi guys i have a trouble with my BIND DNS server, i have a webserver installed as in the "The perfect Debian Server with ISPConfig (Squeeze)", almost everything was going fine, the important thing is tha DNS was working and queries to my domain "" and any other domain i had authority over were properly resolved by my DNS server, yesterday i decided to hire a VPN service (StrongVPN) and got an OpneVPN package, i have my server now running on the VPN IP Addres but my DNS server is not resolving DNS queries anymore, i think it is a problem of the VPN connection but honestly i dont know much about VPN's. I have tried


davidlaredo@davidlaredo-Latitude-E5420:~$ telnet 53
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
I have also tested


davidlaredo@davidlaredo-Latitude-E5420:~$ dig @ any

; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>> @ any
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached


davidlaredo@davidlaredo-Latitude-E5420:~$ host
Host not found: 2(SERVFAIL)
if i run a dig query on the server it shows


administrator@server1:~$ dig @localhost any

; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> @localhost any
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd
;; Got answer:

I can acces the server via ssh using the ip address and I can even acces the ispconfig control panel with the ip address too so i think its a misconfiguration of BIND.

Please help
