    DNS error with Fedora 14, 15 - "connection timed out; no servers ..."


    I have a Dell laptop.
    Using VMware with Fedora 14, 15 virtual machines. Network is ok, ping ok.
    I have configured DNS on both 2 Fedora 14, 15. Step by step OK.
    I have google, stop iptables, check /etc/nsswitch.conf, disable selinux also.
    And I test with command: host, nslookup, ping , get this error:
    ";; connection timed out; no servers could be reached"
    So AnyOne could help me? Thanks so much.

    I configure DNS on Ubuntu, is ok. That's working.

    IP DNS Fedora 14: 192.168.0.10
    # vi /etc/named.rfc1912.zones
    zone "mysites.com" IN {
    type master;
    file "mysites.com";
    allow-update { none; };
    };

    zone "0.168.192.in-addr.arpa" IN {
    type master;
    file "mysites.com.rev";
    allow-update { none; };
    };

    # vi /var/named/mysites.com
    $TTL 1D
    @ IN SOA dns.mysites.com. mail.mysites.com. (
    2011073001 ; serial
    1D ; refresh
    1H ; retry
    1W ; expire
    3H ) ; minimum
    IN NS dns.mysites.com.
    dns IN A 192.168.0.10
    # vi /var/named/mysites.com.rev
    $TTL 1D
    @ IN SOA dns.mysites.com. mail.mysites.com. (
    2011073001 ; serial
    1D ; refresh
    1H ; retry
    1W ; expire
    3H ) ; minimum
    IN NS dns.mysites.com.
    10 IN PTR dns.mysites.com.
    # service named restart
    # service iptables stop
    # vi /etc/selinux/config # SELINUX=disabled
    # vi /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver 192.168.0.10
    # vi /etc/nsswitch.conf
    hosts: files dns
    # host dns.mysites.com
    ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

    I also setup chroot.
    # /etc/named/chroot/etc/named/named.conf # it includes /etc/named.rfc1912.zones too.

    I'm very tired for 2 days. Help me! Fedora.

    OK first lets see if the services are running and how they were called.
    Run the following and paste the output;

    Code:
    ps -ef | grpe named
