Yes, you are right. I added my other server's ip addresses to it so that
they can use the DNS server for name resolving.

I had made tinydns run on the public ip. dnscache was running on 127.0.0.1
My other servers weren't able to use this DNS server because it was
listening only on 127.0.0.1 so I added another dnscache named dnscache-ext
and made it run on the same public ip where tinydns was running because I
didn't have another public ip on the DNS server.
And I guess that is why things went bad. Right now I've removed dnscache-ext
and everything is back normal. Just my other servers aren't using my DNS
server. They are using my ISP's DNS server.

Yes, I've posted there too. My personal feeling is that this list has more
knowledgeable people I've seen. That's why I post to this list too.
PS: I read a review about your book. Sounds really good because this time it
has been written by a DD. Am eagerly waiting for it to be published in
