I have a Mac mini server i want to setup to host a couple of things.
My setup is as follows:
The WAN connection (static IP and ISP nameservers) goes into the wan port of the Airport Extreme. The Mac mini server is connected to one of the ethernet ports. The mac mini will host my domain something.com.
My settings so far: Airport Express gets:
96.x.x.x as the external static IP from the ISP
174.y.y.y as the nameserver
Mac mini server always gets a reserved DHCP IP from the Airport Express:
10.0.1.3 is the server's ip
10.0.1.1 as the dns (this ip is the airport express itself)
My dns server has an A record pointing to ns.something.com and a PTR doing the reverse.
I've already added my 96.x.x.x to point ns.something.com with my registrar as attached.
NOW: Nobody seems to be able to access my ns.something.com to resolve any of my records. From a any computer in my network I CAN see my ns and everything works. The outside on the other hand does not... it's as if the airport extreme which "holds" the exterior 94.x.x.x address doesn't pass DNS along to my 10.0.1.3 ns server.
I have the server managing the airport. Isn't this supposed to work?
