I have the domain "" registered with Go Daddy.

I want to point it to our internal web server so that we can manage the DNS. I have created two names servers "" and ""...both work and resolve to the correct IP.

How do I make resolve to the correct IP?? right now it can't be pinged. I have tried creating a new forward lookup zone for solinkcorp but it is not working. Is this the right step? every time I add A records to ns1 or creates one for want to remove the ns1.

I also need to setup email using MX recoreds,..but I assume once resolves that will work.

Any guidance at all will be appreciated.
