[Bind-users] Limited visibility

Thanks Remko ;)

So the answer is:

There are no queries logged and no packets in 
when I use "dig @ns1.bt.net www.w-sys.co.uk". 
Since I am running the query from my domain, I do see a lookup of
ns1.bt.net, but that comes from me rather than bt.

I get the following output from dig:

[gaustin at lwks gaustin]$ dig @ns1.bt.net www.w-sys.co.uk
; <<>> DiG 9.2.2-P3 <<>> @ns1.bt.net www.w-sys.co.uk
;; global options:  printcmd
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

Looks like it cannot find the name server...
