dns client cannot resolve on dns server


good day to everyone; i have a problem in resolving dns client. first i setup a dns server, install the bind rpm configure the /etc/named.conf , /var/named/zone and /var /named/reversezone. i also configure the /etc/resolve.conf in the client side.
when i perform a dig command on the dns server, i received a correct output and i can also perform ping using computer hostname.
my problem is when i try to perform a ping command in the client side using hostname. i received an error "host unknown", the same error when i also perform a dig command.
but when i ping using ip address, i received a responce.

does any body encounter this kind of problem. please help

I solved the problem. You should open the udp 53 port on lptable.
