DNS lookups go out on UDP and TCP port 53.  If you're firewalling that
out you won't be able to look up names.  If you want to forward DNS
lookups with BIND, set the "forwarders" option in the configuration
file.  If you're not running a nameserver then you can specify name
servers in /etc/resolv.conf with "nameserver n.n.n.n".
