Got a problem setting up a nameserver. Here are the details:

domain http://stagingtestserver.com.au/ (I did some updates and now www.stagingtestserver.com.au won't resolve)

I got some errors in www.intodns.com/stagingtestserver.com.au as well. I could not ping ns1. and ns2. also.

This is the record file under /var/named/stagingtestserver.com.au.hosts:

$ttl 38400
stagingtestserver.com.au. IN  SOA ns1.stagingtestserver.com.au myemail\.here.gmail.com. (
          1341370630
          10800
          3600
          604800
          38400 )
stagingtestserver.com.au. IN  A   202.4.229.161
www.stagingtestserver.com.au. IN  A   202.4.229.161
ftp.stagingtestserver.com.au. IN  A   202.4.229.161
m.stagingtestserver.com.au.   IN  A   202.4.229.161
localhost.stagingtestserver.com.au.   IN  A   127.0.0.1
webmail.stagingtestserver.com.au. IN  A   202.4.229.161
admin.stagingtestserver.com.au.   IN  A   202.4.229.161
mail.stagingtestserver.com.au.    IN  A   202.4.229.161
stagingtestserver.com.au. IN  MX  5 mail.stagingtestserver.com.au.
ns1.stagingtestserver.com.au. IN  A   202.4.229.161
ns2.stagingtestserver.com.au. IN  A   202.4.229.172
stagingtestserver.com.au. IN  NS  ns1.stagingtestserver.com.au.
stagingtestserver.com.au. IN  NS  ns2.stagingtestserver.com.au.

Any thoughts, guys? Thanks and I appreciate all your thoughts/help/(ahem violent) reactions? :)

Do you have glue records set up with your registrar? –  Shane Madden Jul 8 '12 at 5:20

Squish says that the glue is setup correctly, but requests to your nameservers are all timing out. I can ping them both, so that's OK, my best guess would be that you haven't cracked open the firewall.

Also, running both your nameserver IPs on the same machine is just asking for trouble.

Hmm, I also read in some forum that port 53 should be open. I added this port in the iptable rules and even stopped that service, but to no avail. Also, I was intrigued by the IPs on the same IP comment, so I'll revert back to the hosting's NS for now and will resume later with your comments in mind. Thanks! –  user127518 Jul 8 '12 at 12:16
