Namerserver problem

hi,

i am trying to configure windows server 2008 r2 as web server + dns server for my domains. i installed dns role. i have a domain "freepoll.net". i defined 2 nameservers under this domain to use for my all other domains. i defined three A records in my registrar's control panel like this:

freepoll.net             37.1.145.42
ns1.freepoll.net      37.1.145.45
ns2.freepoll.net      37.1.145.46

and on my 2008 r2 server,  i wanted to use those nameservers for my domain "ederslik.net". i created a forward zone and an A record for ederslik.net:

ederslik.net            37.1.145.42

and for ederslik.net, i added ns1.freepoll.net and ns2.freepoll.net as nameservers.
(right click  /properties / nameservers)

but i didn' t work. When i check nameservers from http://dnscheck.pingdom.com
i get this error :
"No delegation could be found at the parent, making your zone unreachable from the Internet.
Not enough nameserver information was found to test the zone ns1.freepoll.net, but an IP address lookup succeeded in spite of that."

i couldn't figure out what is missing? any help will be appreciated.

thanx.

Do you have your network currently setup to PUBLISH your DNS servers, making them available for lookup to the internet at large?

Not that it's wrong in anyway, but I've never seen anyone do this before, usually my clients have used thier ISP's DNS server for public entries.

Did you update your domain registrar nameserver settings for your ederslik.net domain to use the ns1. and ns2.freepoll.net ?

Thanks for your attention but at last i solved the problem myself.

Both ns1.freepoll.net and ns2.freepoll.net must be defined as nameservers in registrar's control panel. (The A records under freepoll.net are not enough).

Without explicitly defining them as nameservers , it is not possible to use them for any domain as nameservers.
