Is it possible to set query-source to all? I'm using AMAZON EC2 and I want to setup a DNS Server. I just notice it was 
bind to private ip address. Since the public ip address was not on the OS ( probably a NAT define by AMAZON), I cannot 
connect to it even just a telnet. When I do netstat:

tcp        0      0 *                   LISTEN      28428/named
tcp        0      0      *                   LISTEN      28428/named
tcp        0      0     *                   LISTEN      28428/named
udp        0      0 *                               28428/named
udp        0      0      *                               28428/named

However, when I do nmap to the public ip, port 53 was not open. I already open port 53 TCP and UDP but still to no 
avail. I did query-source all port *; on named.conf but still keep on listening to My suspect is it 
keeps on listening to that's why I cannot connect to it.

I'm using bind-9.5.0-P2.
