I am hosting our own DNS server.  The configuration for our domain and ftp servers are being resolved.  However, when put in the DNS IPs in other servers or workstations they cannot go into the internet.  There is something wrong with the configuration that does not allow internet access with those DNS IPs.  Let me know what the problem could be.  Thanks.

This did not work.  I can ping IPs but not url names.

Did you delete the "." root zone from the forward lookup zone and add  a forwarder to your DNS forwarder tab to the IP of your ISP DNS server?  Do not put an external IP in the DNS tab of your local workstations.  You don't want to be doing any type of name resolution via the internet when you have your own DNS server locally.

Is your forward and reverse lookup zones setup correctly?

Here is a link that shows you some info about it.
http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/library/edf68cca-86f1-4b89-8e44-79f768963e951033.mspx?mfr=true

Basically if i'm not mistaking if your network range is say 192.168.1.x then the reverse lookup zone would be 1.168.192---....

There is an example in that article to make sure you got it setup correctly.
