Default Ubuntu 12.10 DNS loop problems


I recently tried an Ubuntu 12.10. It was checked against falko's perfect server tutorial, install process was pretty much the same.


Server is located behind a router, internal ip Router has all the relevant ports (ftp, ssh, mail, dns, web, https) forwarded to this ip.


I created the nameservers in ispconfig via the dns config wizard and checked their creation manually in /etc/bind. Then from my registrar, I pointed the example.com domain to the newly created nameservers. After waiting for some time for DNS to propagate, I realised something was off - basically I think I'm facing a circular reference problem.

My dns records look like this:

/etc/bind/pri.example.com [BM--] 0 L:[ 1+ 0 1/ 17] *(0 / 698b) 0036 0x024
$TTL 3600
@ IN SOA ns1.example.com. daseagle.gmail.com. (
2013011101 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
7200 ; refresh, seconds
540 ; retry, seconds
604800 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds

example.com. 3600 A
example.com. 3600 MX 10 mail.example.com.
example.com. 3600 NS ns1.example.com.
www 3600 A 82.208.XXX.XX
mail 3600 A 82.208.XXX.XX


Help? I really don't know how to get around it.
