reset it back to defaults
Your name server should be ns1.netregistry.com or whatever the correct one is.
And then you edit the zone from within netregistrys zone manager.

Then once the zone is with netregistry you can edit MX records, A/C records etc.

Login to netregistry console
choose your domain, press administer
click on the domain name option
under name servers delete whatever you have there and add the following
ns1.netregistry.net
ns2.netregistry.net
ns3.netregistry.net

Then netregistry will be managing your zone file, then you can go to zone manager and make changes
perfectsolution.com.au        3600        IN        NS        ns.perfectsolution.com.au.
perfectsolution.com.au        3600        IN        NS        ns2.perfectsolution.com.au.
This is not required by you unless you are going to be creating a nameserver for other domains, which i assume you are trying to get your website and email to work for perfectsolution.com.au

If you are going to host your own mail MX server, then you need the zone manager, otherwise if you are going to use a third party hosting provider you only need to add the hosting nameservers and everything will work on your hosting provider's control panel.

You will need to be a bit more specific on what you want to achieve by all this.

zonemanager is not required by all circumstances
Only required for lets say advanced requirements.

For general hosting setup just add your nameserver information under the domain name menu i mentioned.

Good i can see you have updated your ns server records correctly.
but you have two mx records for netregistry and 2 for mx.perfectsolutions.

Ok for MX, then goto zone manager
remove all netregistry MX records, and the mx1/2 you created earlier.
perfectsolution.com.au        3600        IN        MX        20        mx.perfectsolution.com.au.
perfectsolution.com.au        3600        IN        MX        10        mx2.perfectsolution.com.au.
^ remove these.
ANd make MX 10 = 60-242-178-134.static.tpgi.com.au
this is the reverse DNS of your IP 60.242.178.134. MX records must be names not IP's.

Then its done, since you have updated nameservers it takes upto 24 hours to update global DNS records.
MX, a and c records can be mixed and change limited only by the TTL which is 3600 secs normally.

C:\Users\sonny>ping -a 208.67.216.132

Pinging hit-nxdomain.opendns.com [208.67.216.132] with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.

You must be using opendns for name resolution ratehr than your ISP provided DNS.
They will try and give you the best match, mine just says cannot resolve right now.

Once global dns is updated it should take you to the netregistry default home page saying website under constructions or whatever it is.

hi SonnyHood
thanks for the reply
I cant remove mx records for netregsitry. there isnt an option for this
perfectsolution.com.au.        3600        IN        MX        20        mx2.netregistry.net.
perfectsolution.com.au.        3600        IN        MX        10        mx3.netregistry.net.

and regarding the ip address for perfectsolution. i would like it to redirect to 60.242.178.134, not 208.67.216.132 and i cant make it happen
again i really appreciate it that if u can enlighten me on this
