Hi All, I configured Register.com to point to my dns server (ISPConfig) and now I'm having problems resolving from outside my network. Various external tools return DNS FAILURE -- but no information. The only thing I see locally is that: Code: dig @126.96.36.199 www.cocoanet.us ; <<>> DiG 9.5.1-P2 <<>> @188.8.131.52 www.cocoanet.us ; (1 server found) ;; global options: printcmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 27409 ;; flags: qr aa rd; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0 ;; [B]WARNING: recursion requested but not available [/B] ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;www.cocoanet.us.

That helped on the local lookups, but I still didn't get any incoming e-mails or any incoming http requests because resolution wasn't happening outside of my network. Any ideas???
