Issues: Hi, I’m experiencing an inconsistent report from ISPConfig control panel, which indicates that all services are up and running without issues. The problem is that command – line function “dig” and DOS command – line “ping” both indicates that the name server responsible for mydomain.tld is unreachable, stating: ‘connection timed out; no servers could be reached’. The system was reconfigured a week ago, handing name server responsibility to BIND9 under ISPConfig under the advice of GoDaddy; I used a How-To posted here to setup two name servers, a master and slave running on two separate machines; ns1.mydomain.tld and ns2.mydomain.tld respectively. Yet, WebPages, email, administrations and ftp services are only accessible using the static IP address. The new configuration has been running for a week (before then, GoDaddy and Qwest managed my DNS needs), but since yesterday I lost the ability to resolve DNS queries, yet ISPConfig reports that my name server is up and running. I contacted GoDaddy, they told me it was Qwest fault (my ISP); Qwest says it my fault. I’ve been fooling around with name server issues now for 2 month; and every time I think I’m out of the woods, the system works a few days and fail and I’m back to square one, I figure if the experiment does not kill me I should in the in become a master of all things DNS. So, does anyone know what I should do? Thank you in advance.
