You choosed all that profiles for installing on the server?
With Thin Client profile you mean the Terminalserver profile, right?

What you have done, ask here? ;-)

First you should try to ping on tjener a host you are knowing it is up 
and running on internet with it's IP-address, not with it's hostname.

Example:(IP of www.google.de)
root@tjener:~# ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=245 time=84.9 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=245 time=91.6 ms
--- ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 2 received, 0% packet loss, time 2008ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 84.967/88.092/91.647/2.754 ms

If that looks like shown above, you should edit the 
file /etc/bind/debian-edu/named.conf.options on tjener and put in an 
official Domain Name Servers IP from your InternetServiceProvider. 
Therefore in that file is a forwarder example which tells you how to 
(You may see it in the /etc/resolv.conf of a host getting its IP from 
your router via DHCP)

Hopefully this helps.
