Tink, that tool is amazing. It reported some problems I didn't even realize I had... Just when I thought I was done fixing crazy BIND problems... sigh.

BTW Jim I did notice another problem with your zone: Your SOA is www.acfd.biz., it should be ns1.acfd.biz.

Also, could you post the full output of the following command (from your server):
Code:
$ dig acfd.biz ns
and if possible
Code:
$ dig acfd.biz axfr

Chort,
I rebuilt my EL 4 from the ground up and started from square one. I have reconfigured everything according to your specifications.

This is the Zone file, hopefully I didnt mess any of this up

$TTL 88440
$ORIGIN acfd.biz.
@ 1D IN SOA ns1.acfd.biz. jscedunn@yahoo.com. (
3010 ; serial
3H ; refresh 6 hours
15M ; retry 1 hour
1W ; expire 1 week
1D ) ; minimum

1D IN NS ns1.acfd.biz.
1D IN NS ns2.acfd.biz.

IN MX 10 mail.acfd.biz.

ns1 IN A MyIpAddress
ns2 IN A MyIpAddress
www IN A MyIpAddress
mail IN A MyIpAddress



This is the first dig
; <<>> DiG 9.2.4 <<>> acfd.biz ns
;; global options: printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 43774

This is the second dig; <<>> DiG 9.2.4 <<>> acfd.biz axfr

acfd.biz. 86400 IN SOA ns1.acfd.biz. jscedunn\@yahoo.co m. 3010 10800 900 604800 86400

Sorry about the format I am not sure how to put it in nice code blocks yet.

Maybe this will shine some light on this

Thanks
Jim

You zone file seems fine, aside from the the whole @ in your e-mail address (it should be a . ).

The basic problem is that DNS requests to your IP are still timing-out. If the requests were reaching your box, but named wasn't running, it would be connection: refused. The fact that it's timing-out means that something on the network is silently dropping the datagrams. It's either your ISP, or some network equipment at your location.

PS, your ISP seems very, very restrictive on bandwidth-usage. Have you ]]read this?

Follow up on DNS problems

Chort,
After taking your advice and looking into my ISP provider, I found the problem. It lies with software that is installed by the ISP to speed up the internet browsing.
Well, I switched ISP and reconfigured as we discussed. Now all works well with my site. Through the process I learned alot and thanks to this forum.

One more thing,
If I want to host 2 domains with one Static IP how do I configure the DNS records? With recursive I dont think I can use the same ip address or do I configure on recursive lookup?

Anyway Thanks
Jim
