Dear Chris,

Thank you for your help. I did comment and added my public static IP
like the following:

 listen-on       { 202.x.x.x; }; # My Static IP

Now when I do from my local PC:

dig yahoo.com @202.x.x.x , I can do DNS lookups.

But when I try doing that from another computer on my network, I can't
do any DNS lookups.

Is that anything that I miss?
