Hi, welcome to LQ!


How did you tell the other PC about which name-server
to query for this?

How did you setup the DNS? You need to provide the information.

Does the server allow connections to port 53?

Also you might check if named is actually runing. (man ps)

(Edit) might try ps aux | grep named
