    I have two servers A & B, both with Debian and ISP3 single server setup on each. Each has it's own public ip with it's own DNS running.

    I have config on serverA a secondary dns for serverB and config on serverB a secondary dns for serverA. After reboot both servers , resync on dns tools and wait for a few hours. There is still no serverB dns info when do a nslookup on serverA. Anyone have any idea? thanks

    Ensue that the "slave" subdirectory in the BIND configuration file directory is writable for bind. You find the detauled bind errors for your problem in the syslog.

    have mod changed /etc/bind/slave to 777. Rebooted, still no 2nd dns zone data transfer.

    check syslog with error : " transfer of "tadj.com/in" from 123.243.65.181#53:failed to connect :connection refused"

    But if i do a nslookup, the tadj dns connection seem ok. ??
    [email protected]:/home/terry# nslookup
    > server 123.243.65.181
    Default server: 123.243.65.181
    Address: 123.243.65.181#53
    > tadj.com
    Server: 123.243.65.181
    Address: 123.243.65.181#53

    Name: tadj.com
    Address: 123.243.65.181
    > set type=mx
    > tadj.com
    Server: 123.243.65.181
    Address: 123.243.65.181#53

    tadj.com mail exchanger = 10 mail.tadj.com.

    Make sure that your firewall allows connections to port 53 TCP and UDP.
