Hi! I've spent about 2 weeks going through the forum trying to figure out what's going on. I was registering some domains with LCN.com, but tried another one with godaddy so I could follow the tutorial, but still having trouble. I've followed the perfect server (centos 5.5) twice now on each server too. This is my setup: Two home servers with Centos 5.5, ispconfig 3, and their own external ip addresses. Server 1 was to be used as nameserver 1, and server 2 as nameserver 2. Web domain from godaddy I've done the following: Set up glue records at godaddy (ns1 and ns2) to the ip addresses of the servers. Set up the nameservers as these records. Looking at www.intodns.com these seem to have registered ok at godaddy. Also looking at whois.domaintools.com the correct nameservers are listed. I set up primary DNS in ispconfig on the 1st server, and secondard in the second server. I added A records for ns1 and ns2 on the primary server. Also setup a website in ispconfig. The problem: I can access my server with the external IP addresses, but not the domain name. www.intodns.com shows "ERROR: One or more of your nameservers did not respond: The ones that did not responded are: ..." I've checked dig on localhost and got this: dig @localhost any mydomain.com ; <<>> DiG 9.3.6-P1-RedHat-9.3.6-4.P1.el5_5.3 <<>> @localhost any mydomain.com ; (1 server found) ;; global options: printcmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 23589 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0 ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;mydomain.com.

Could anyone please send me in the right direction of what to do next? I'm stuck. Many thanks, Ted.
