external dns records on internal dns?

woah!!!! love the new web interface... anyway

I want to replace my external dns server, which is currently running on a Dell Optiplex GX1. This machine is currently sitting outside of my firewall, which is a cisco pix 515e, running 6.3(3) os.

I want to setup a virtual machine on one of my three ESX 3.5 servers that sit on the inside of my firewall, and have it handle the "external" records for my domains. I have the os setup, imported the dns settings from the old server, etc.

my problem is that when I go to dnsstuff.com and do a report on my domain, it says it can not reach the dns server.
I created a static for my old dns ip to the internal dns ip, and opened both tcp and udp, inbound/outbound for now.

for example:
static (inside,outside) outside.ip.address inside.ip.address netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0
access-list inside_access_in permit udp host inside.ip.address any
access-list inside_access_in permit tcp host inside.ip.address any
access-list outside_access_in permit udp any host outside.ip.address
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host outside.ip.address

any thoughts on what is wrong, or is what I am trying to do just not possible?

thanks.

Re: external dns records on internal dns?

got it working now, after doing a couple of things..

powered off external switch and pix, to clear arp tables for the mac address of the old machine

cleaned up the pix config, as I has some stray entries from previous tests

and then, after I posted this problem to the local state educators tech list, my isp called (they saw the posting on the list) and they just remoted into our/their router and cleared the old machines mac address from it..

Re: external dns records on internal dns?

busier than I ever wanted to be.. I left the school corp last August to be part of a novell team for a consulting company... it was alright, but I decided the travel just wasnt for me, and my old job was filled yet, so I was able to go back, along with a 25% raise.
so, I was buried with work before I left, and then I created a 5 month gap of no work getting done... so I am way behind now.. 🙂

other than that, pretty good..
wife and kid are doing fine, my son corey (3 in march) spent a day in the hospital in December due to phneumonia in one lung and RSV.. oxygen stats dropped down to 82% when they checked at the doctors office.... only had to spend the night, so it was all good...except he still hasnt fully recoverd...
kid is smart too...and has his own dell laptop, or else dad wouldnt be able to get any work done on his when I bring it home... plays lots of kids games, several learning games, etc.... smart as a whip.. he is going to be trouble...

Oh, yes, you're going to have your hands full with him. I'm very glad to hear that he's on the mend, and hope he fully recovers very soon.

Not too bad getting your old job back with a 25% salary increase! One of the idiocies in this life is that employers tend to not see the real value of someone until after they leave.

We understand you're busy, but pop in now and then to let us know how things are going, or to just vent about how things are going that day. <G>

Really good to see you back. : )
