DNS (BIND)... Probably a simple problem


I am trying to create a DNS server on a linux machine using BIND. I have it installed and running with one virtual domain setup. This virtual domain works fine locally and goes to the correct home directory/document (index.html). This domain is registered and points to the nameserver ns.<my-site>.com. ns.<my-site>.com when typed into a browser brings up the default test page for apache... so im guessing that's working ok. The missing link is that I when I type <my-site>.com into a browser it doesnt find it. I dont see what i've done wrong. Could anyone help? Seems like im missing something probably quite simple.

Also, im using webmin to configure bind if that makes any difference.

-----
Thought i'd put a quick intro here aswell since im new. Hello!

Don't you have to put a servers name in the weba address? Like www.mystie.com or websrv1.mysite.com?

Something I forgot to add!

The hostname for the linux machine has also been configured with a zonefile in the same way I did <my-site>.com on the same machine. This address works fine accessing from the Internet... although it is the actual hostname of the box, not just a virtual domain.

I've been entering it with www. prefixed and it works locally but not via another machine on the Internet.

Do you have a firewall blocking incoming DNS requests? Does your router redirect DNS requests to the dns server?
