I've got it pointing to my name server's IP Address, that is no problem at all, My Problem is that I download the root hints, then use the GUI for the name server, for some reason it is not working, what am I not doing, or doing wrong ? One more thing, I also notice no input to the DNS files from the GUI, I don't know what to do at this point.

Can someone please help???
