i just set up a domain name server (my first) on my domain. i'm pretty sure it's correctly configured. i got a secondary dns through twisted4life.com and registered both the primary and secondary dns with my registrar.
when i run dig from a remote machine, i get this:
; <<>> DiG 9.2.2-P3 <<>> www.mydomain.com
;; global options: printcmd

here's what i think the problem is: xxx.xxx.xxx.152 should be xxx.xxx.xxx.153. i've registered ns.mydomain.com as xxx.xxx.xxx.153 with the registrar (and called back to verify this info), so i'm suprised it shows xxx.xxx.xxx.152. i've contacted my isp and xxx.xxx.xxx.152 is actually my broadcast ip.
i guess i don't understand the process fully enough to know where the problem lies. what exactly does my registrar have to configure on their end? they say everything's configured correctly. i thought he said he gives this info to verisign. so could it be a mistake on verisign's part?
thanks for any help,
