Parallels Fix

DNS Issue on VPS Container

It appears that NAT is the issue:

==>  FROM VPS:
C:\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin>nslookup ns1.winnetservers.net. 127.0.0.1
Server: localhost
Address: 127.0.0.1

Name: ns1.winnetservers.net
Address: 75.125.155.169

C:\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin>exit
Command ‘enter’ is successfully finished

==> FROM HW:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>nslookup ns1.winnetservers.net. 75.125.155.169
Server: vps.winnetonline.net
Address: 75.125.155.169

Name: ns1.winnetservers.net
Address: 75.125.155.169

==FROM OUTSIDE:
[12:37:11][||Parallels][~]$ host -ta ns1.winnetservers.net. 75.125.155.169
;; reply from unexpected source: 75.125.201.2#64718, expected 75.125.155.169#53
;; reply from unexpected source: 75.125.201.2#64718, expected 75.125.155.169#53

Because NATing is enabled:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>vzlist -a -o veid,nettype

VEID NETTYPE
1 routed
107 bridged
114 routed
117 routed+nat+bcast
121 routed+bcast
132 routed+bcast
139 routed+bcast
151 routed+bcast
153 routed+bcast
157 routed+bcast
181 routed+bcast

After I disabled NAT it worked without any issues:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>vzctl set 117 –nat off –save
Command ‘set’ is successfully finished

[12:39:07][||Parallels][~]$ host -ta ns1.winnetservers.net. 75.125.155.169
Using domain server:
Name: 75.125.155.169
Address: 75.125.155.169#53
Aliases:

ns1.winnetservers.net has address 75.125.155.169

[12:45:44][||Parallels][~]$ host -ta ns1.winnetservers.net.
ns1.winnetservers.net has address 75.125.155.16

If you plan to use NAT make sure you have configured it properly and all ports are forwarded correctly. E.g. DNS needs both UDP and TCP ports 53 to be forwarded properly.
