Ok, I think I'm starting to understand the problem, but, any suggestions on how to resolve this?

I checked in the ../named/ folder as you said my domain name would be in, and it was, with lots of info in the file... including an MX line:

Code:
mail  MX      10 liquidlightning.com.

liquidlightning.com.      A        158.91.201.193
mail       A       158.91.201.193
www       A       192.168.1.125
ns       A       192.168.1.125
ns1       A       192.168.1.125
So, as you described in your DiG,

Code:
;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
liquidlightning.com.    7200    IN      SOA     ns5.zoneedit.com. soacontact.zoneedit.com. 1037464252 14400 7200 950400 7200

;; Query time: 286 msec
;; SERVER: 81.169.163.104#53(81.169.163.104)
;; WHEN: Sun Oct 23 12:58:26 2005
;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 97
Before I setup this server, I had to use Zoneedit for my DNS, hence the ns5.zoneedit.com, but I thought ISPConfig was a DNS server as well. I'm using GoDaddy as my registrar, and when I tried to put in ns.liquidlightning.com and ns1.liquidlightning.com as the DNS servers, it said:

Unavailable error in field Host name1
Unavailable error in field Host name2


I'm assuming that if I can get GoDaddy to accept my DNS, my server will be able to resolve all the A/MX/etc records and everything will be fine... is this not right?

I have port 53 forwarding to the server, is this the correct port?
Also, I noticed there are 3 other ports open:

Port 5335 (tcp) is open (unknown)!
Port 32769 (tcp) is open (unknown)!
Port 55512 (tcp) is open (unknown)!

Are these used by ISPConfig? Do I need to have them forwarded in my router also? Or can they be left alone?

*Edit*
I just noticed... the IP address is wrong in that Bind file. That's the IP of where the server *will* be... it's on a temporary IP right now. Is that why Godaddy isn't resolveing ns.liquidlightning.com?

If I change that to the temp IP, would that fix it?
