    Hey All,

    I'm sorry for the stupid question but i seem to be having some problems with creating a DNS forward. I would like to forward where is hosted on my server. :)
    I have gone under DNS -> Edit DNS Zone and added it in as a 14400 A record with the Static IP address i want to point the DNS to in the next block right after the A record dropdown. :confused:

    This was done succesfully and i understand that the DNS will take some time to propagate to other root nameservers and so forth.
    However i am checking if my nameservers have a record of this forward by going to a independant server online and running the following command:

    host -t ns
    and i obtain the following:
    ** server can't find NXDOMAIN

    Where it should be saying forwards to (the static IP address) :(

    My apologies for the complicated allusions. Can anyone help and explain why my nameservers dont have this information yet?

    Thanks and sorry if it's another stupid question.
    Wzd :eek:
