so far so good, bind seems to be working. what command did your
issue so that you think you can't resolve your zone entries

output of 'ifconfig -a' could be helpfull.

you could also try running tcpump(1) while trying to resolve
names. try sniffing on all interfaces, so you can tell where your
name service queries are going to.

i tried quering your nameserver for but i didn't
get any response so it seems your forwarding is not working.

bind is very touchy regarding the order of options. first you
have to define the acl and afterwards you can use it in your
options stanza, so:

acl trusted {;

options {
         directory "/etc/namedb";
         forward first;
         forwarders {
         allow-transfer { trusted; };

is the correct order.

your named.root file is also missing

your can get one with the following command:

'dig . ns > named.root'
