Ok all seems to be working ok. However when I type nslookup
I should get:

bulldog:#nslookup
Default Sever: localhost
Address: 127.0.0.1
>

What I do get is just:
>

Also when I do a nslookup from a computer on the network using my DNS server i get:

Default Server: Unknown
Address: 192.168.1.100

what is going on here?
