woah!!!! love the new web interface... anyway

I want to replace my external dns server, which is currently running on a Dell Optiplex GX1. This machine is currently sitting outside of my firewall, which is a cisco pix 515e, running 6.3(3) os.

I want to setup a virtual machine on one of my three ESX 3.5 servers that sit on the inside of my firewall, and have it handle the "external" records for my domains. I have the os setup, imported the dns settings from the old server, etc.

my problem is that when I go to dnsstuff.com and do a report on my domain, it says it can not reach the dns server.
I created a static for my old dns ip to the internal dns ip, and opened both tcp and udp, inbound/outbound for now.

for example:
static (inside,outside) outside.ip.address inside.ip.address netmask 0 0
access-list inside_access_in permit udp host inside.ip.address any
access-list inside_access_in permit tcp host inside.ip.address any
access-list outside_access_in permit udp any host outside.ip.address
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host outside.ip.address

any thoughts on what is wrong, or is what I am trying to do just not possible?
