Default repointing DNS ns and soa records

Hi,
I'm not sure if this is a matter of needing to wait a bit longer for changes to propagate but I've pointed my NS records to look at my ISPconfig 3 server and after 48 hours noting is resolving.

If I try an nslookup from a client that points to a different nfs server the lookups fail:-

Quote:
> bash-3.2$ nslookup
> set q=soa
> ositweb.com
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
> set q=ns
> ositweb.com
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
but if I change the server to be the hetzner.de based ISPconfig one - the lookups work
Quote:
nslookup
server static.71.91.40.188.clients.your-server.de
Default server: static.71.91.40.188.clients.your-server.de
Address: 188.40.91.71#53
> set q=soa
> ositweb.com
origin = static.71.91.40.188.clients.your-server.de
mail addr = postmaster.osit.com
serial = 2009100101
refresh = 28800
retry = 7200
expire = 604800
minimum = 86400
> set q=ns
> ositweb.com
Server: static.71.91.40.188.clients.your-server.de
Address: 188.40.91.71#53

ositweb.com nameserver = ns1.osit.com.
ositweb.com nameserver = ns2.osit.com.
I feel that everything is in place but as time creeps on I'm not so sure

Thanks
Paul

Please check your DNS server by executing this command on the shell:

dig @localhost ositweb.com

Hi Till,

Thanks for your reply, The problems solved now. I think it has something to do with the ns or soa record needing to also resolve to the PTR record. When I changed the nameserver to one that is resolvable both ways it kicked into life
