I am having a headache with DNS.

Lets say my public IP is 1.2.3.4, my local IP is 192.168.0.10 and my domain is example.com I am running CentOS on a virtual machine (Parallels Desktop for Mac) with a LAN card reserved for it, so it gets Ip directly from the router. I have ports 80,443,53 forwarded to 192.168.0.10. Both Mac OS and CentOs firewalls are Off.

The strange is when I type dig @1.2.3.4 example.com from my other PC I get:

; <<>> DiG 9.8.3-P1 <<>> @1.2.3.4 example.com
; (1 server found)
;; global options: +cmd

but when i type: dig @ns1.example.com example.com it waits a few seconds and returns dig: couldn't get address for 'ns1.dsht.in': not found

Please provide /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf from the remote PC and the NS. and do you have IPv6 on the CentOS box from your ISP? –  rjt Nov 2 '13 at 20:58
    
Is ns1.dsht.in your example.com? –  rjt Nov 2 '13 at 20:59
