The system that is acting as the firewall is also the DNS for our domain. 
 Therefore, I can not see how I could have locked out access to DNS (I made 
sure that I had the appropriate rules for allowing any system in our domain 
to talk with any other system in our domain).  Also, the above command that 
you gave me also never returns.  I am at a loss to explain why.
