did you figure out your problem?
I cheated. The domain registrar in question provides its own dns
hosting server. I used it. But I did not want at first because it has
limitations like no mx record - but for now thats not an issue.
In the past I did setup my own server, but have found it easier to use
. They are free but can be slow to propagate and update.
Okay, I will have a look at this too. Thanks.
You seem to be using an internal IP (192.168...)
Is your router allowing DNS port through and redirecting to
The not-working nslookup was using my internal company DNS server which is
forwarding to a provider. That's not an issue.
I get the same "not found" on any other DNS server.
What I wanted to illustrate: The nameserver itself (ns.gonglenuts.id.au on
184.108.40.206) is up and running - but it does not get propagated.
You can query it yourself:
How long has it been on for? could be it is still
propagating. It can
take over 24 hrs sometimes.
I set it up weeks ago.
Did you create an A record for gonglenuts.id.au?
Yes (see request above, and also in my zone file below).
This is my zonefile for greenwareIT on xname.org
$TTL 600 ; Default TTL
greenwareit.com.au. IN SOA ns0.xname.org
2014073101 ; serial
600 ; Refresh period
600 ; Retry interval
604800 ; Expire time
10800 ; Negative caching TTL
IN NS ns2.xname.org
IN NS ns1.xname.org

It is similar to mine, I think (of cause my is shorter)
