    Unhappy issue with DNS and I kindly need help from you all


    I spent the entire weekend trying to solve this and yet still working on it!!!

    I just got my server from fedex
    moved everything from old to new with Centos 5.1


    ok here is an idea of what I have..

    DSL line come in to my modem from modem goes to my router,
    my router forwards traffict to my main server 192.168.123.2
    apache Worked!!!
    all domains that I host works OK
    DNS is running at 192.168.123.2 which is my main server...
    Now
    on my other server 192.168.123.1 is my Email server Running postfix
    on my router is set to forward smtp/POP
    well, I can not reaching my email server with any client email softwares..

    my dns is only has master since I think my router will direct traffict to those ports...

    or am I wrong :-0 ?


    on my /etc/hosts.
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.123.2 ns2.example.com ns2
    ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6


    on my /etc/resolv.conf

    ; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
    search 192.168.123.254 # Router gateway
    nameserver 192.168.123.2 # main server

    with this setup seems to works fine excepts my email server...

    and Honestly I never done any other setup where I run many services from different machine, I always done it withing one single system and since
    I want take some of the load from the old server I decited to other new one and got stuck on email srver....

    hope you guys can help me...

    1 First ensure that you are able to ping to the 192.168.123.1 from your other machines ?

    2 Check if there is any IPtables/fierwall running on the 192.168.123.1 machines.
