    After setting up 2 Debian DNS servers as per:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-ru...and-secondary-with-ispconfig-3-debian-squeeze

    Added numerours entries, everything is cloned to 2nd server no probs.

    However, when testing using " dig " Using this server name " ns1.test1.com and dns entry for mydomain1.com
    Eg:
    dig @ns1.test1.com any mydomain1.com

    ; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> @ns1.test1.comt any mydomain1.com
    ; (1 server found)
    ;; global options: +cmd
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached


    So I ran the same command using 127.0.0.1, and it works?

    dig @127.0.0.1 any mydomain1.com

    ; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> @127.0.0.1 any mydomain1.com
    ; (1 server found)
    ;; global options: +cmd
    ;; Got answer:

    sorry I do feel stupid
    Simple rookie mistake.
    error in
    /etc/hosts

    it had
    127.0.0. 1 ns1.test1.com ns1

    Changed it to
    192.168.11.1 ns1.test1.com ns1

    Hope this prevents anyone making the same rookie mistake I did,
    sorry it was a long day.
