DNS Issue, New box redhat 9 bind version 9.2. Bind resolves on Redhat box but does not answer any request, I am stumped


I setup a new redhat box with the latest bind RPM.  I installed it and setup the named file.  The box will answer any bind request when you SSH to it and do a dig.  However I cannot get to port 53 using telnet.  I checked the network and the redhat box says it is listening to port 53 for DNS request.  I have disabled all firewalls for the box until I figure this out.  

Again Bind is working on the local box.  It will just not respond to any request from outside of itself.  No firewalls are configured.  The box is setup to be a slave for my Master DNS.  The slave is also not updateing from the master.

Any helps on this would be appreciated.  I scoured the web for help but very little on this type of issue.

   Could you post
netstat -na
netstat -rn
so people can understand your configuration in order to assist you?

Thanks, I found the issue.  One wrong } and everything crashes.  Fixed the file and now I am on line.

Thanks though for the attempt.
