[Pdns-users] Can't access remotely: "connection timed out; no servers could be reached"

I have a fresh PowerDNS install with some test records in the database. 
CentOS 5 (all updates)
Latest PowerDNS RPM

I can query successfully when logged into the name server, e.g.

[me at ns1 ~] $ host foo.test.com

However, when I try to query the from my workstation, it fails. 

[me at work ~] $ host foo.test.com xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

I believe that I have the firewall set up correctly. 

/etc/sysconfig/iptables has the following: 

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m udp -p udp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT

which I believe will accept incoming connection for DNS. 

What else should I check?
