for froelicher.org i have defined two nameservers in my ex-hosting provider. both actually point to my. fixed Public IP number.
from here I presume my mls dns settings should take over. but they do not work.
what record do i have to create within the realm froelicher.org so people can find it?
Or do I have to use external nameserver?
thank you for the hint. It seems to me, when creating a "zone" in MLS one would already "glue" a nameserver to the domain.
If I check out network-tools.com it gives me
Retrieving DNS records for froelicher.org...
Query for DNS records for froelicher.org failed: Timed out
Whois query for froelicher.org..
Because I have defined at my registrar my local IP and two name server.
Here on my MLS I have a Zone, froelicher.org, two ns records AND two machine records binding this ns1 and ns2 to the local IP address within my network.
But it does not work :-(
Do I have to make the GLUE record at my registrar (they do not permit that, they only let me create two nsX.mydomain.org name server).
Sorry for my questions...but I am not a network pro.

If I try a direct query of your nameserver, I get no connection.
ovid:~ jaime$ host ns1.froelicher.org 126.96.36.199
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
Do you have a firewall somewhere in between you and the public internet? Are you sure the service is running? if you run the same command above on your server, does it work? How about from a client on your local network?
I'm able to ping your server. However, it's clear the port is not available.

Dear Jaime and Uptime.
Thank you a lot for your help.
I couldn't figure it out, how to do it on my server. Ixwebhosting, my registrar would not let me make a A record only nameserver records.
Pointing one of these ns records to my domain would not resolve, because it was in the same domain as the nameserver......
so I signed up for a freedns.afraid.com and made my A record pointing to my IP and my two MX records for my google apps stuff.
Not very elegant.. but.. worked within 2 hours.
I could not find ANYTHING of how to make a GLUE record in MLS.
But your answers helped.
