Default DNS Server Configuration

I am trying to setup a static IP address for my servers. At this point, I have that configured properly, but I am unable to setup the DNS servers that I was given by my ISP. I can't run any updates because of this. It can't resolve the lookups.

Any ideas of how to fix this? I am running Debian Lenny.

Code:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
# allow-hotplug eth0
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 208.33.73.159
        netmask 255.255.255.192
        gateway 208.33.73.129
I tried putting them in the /etc/resolv.conf file, but nothing changed.
Code:
nameserver 63.165.191.2
nameserver 205.162.170.4
Thanks for the help in advance.

Are you able to ping any ip addresses from your server that are in the internet?

I can ping addresses and get returns. I just can't use any names because they are not being translated to the numbers for me.

Can you oing the IP addresses of the nameservers?
Do you run a firewall that might block dns requests?
You can also try to use other public dns servers like the ones from google: http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/

I am not running a firewall at this time. I plugged straight into the port. Now, I can't ping anything from that machine, but I can ping the machine from another machine and it works.

Any ideas?

look here for pings from outside your country;

my best guess is that you have this ip is protected by a firewall with Discard Ping function.
