Default DNS not found for 1 domain

I have one domain that doesn't want to resolve for some reason. I've deleted and recreated the zone with the wizard.

If I run dig domain.com on the server I can see the A record exists. If I run dig from my home machine I'm getting a failure. The nameservers are correct and whois shows them as correct. I'm using BIND with Debian Lenny.

If i look in /etc/bind/ I see pri.domain.com which I've compared to others and it looks fine.

Any advice on where to go from here.

If you query the local server with dig and it returns the correct record, then your problem is not the bind configuration file of the domain.

There are several possible problems:

1) Bind is not listening on the external interface.
2) A firewall is blocking the bind port.
3) The dns change has not been propagated.

for 1+2) Post the output of:

netstat -tap


iptables -L

For 3), wait 24 hours. But only if 1+2 dont show any problems
