I have set up bind9 on my server. It is for the LAN only and has no Internet connection. I used: http://www.zaphu.com/2007/09/14/ubuntu-dns-server-guide-bind-master-server-setup/ as my guide but substituted 'myorg' for their 'mydomain.lan'. To test it on that same server I tried: dig myorg The response after some time was: ...connection timed out; no servers could be reached. I am not sure how to proceed from here - any help would be appreciated - many thanks.
