Cannot nslookup the DNS server from client pc !

Dear Friends ,

I have to succesfully configure DNS server in RHEL 5 server . I can test it using following command :

[root@server ~]# host has address
[root@server ~]# host domain name pointer
[root@server ~]# cat /etc/resolv.conf

But the problem is , I cannot dig or nslookup my DNS server from the client pc . I have to set my DNS server ip as client's DNS ip . But still I cannot "nslookup" my DNS server . Is there any further configuration make for this reason in Redhat Ent. Linux 5.0 ?
