Zone transfer not working

Zone transfers have stopped working for my domain laiti.iki.fi. When I set name servers ns17.zoneedit.com and ns8.zoneedit.com, I get an error "nameserver does not allow zone transfers." What to do?

Hi. NS for the domain name/subdomain is not set to ZoneEdit name servers. Where (URL, lookup?) do you get error you're reporting about "name server does not allow zone transfers"?

dig +trace laiti.iki.fi NS

Hi,

The NS is not set because iki.fi does not allow me to set it. And it does not allow that because it gets error from Zoneedit DNS servers when I try to set them; see attachment.

Translation for the screenshot: "Wrong NS record: The name server provider does not allow zone transfers for alias laiti: REFUSED"

I found out that the name servers for my domain have been changed and they should now be dns1.zoneedit.com and dns2.zoneedit.com. Also, I was missing a dot in the fields.

But I still get the "The name server provider does not allow zone transfers for alias laiti: REFUSED" error.

What is the URL of the page that you are reporting is showing the refused messages?

Can you please be explicit on what you mean by zone transfers.... the domain is not set as secondary and there is no IP listed in the Integrations area for zone transfers.

regards.

Well, I do not actually know how Iki arranges the zone transfers for their domains. But the situation is this: I have a domain from iki.fi (laiti.iki.fi) and there is an option to set a name service provider for that domain in order to have a secondary DNS. But when I set zoneedit name servers there, I suppose it makes an attempt of zone transfer from Iki to ZE. That attempt fails and the settings are not saved.

My guess is that I'd need to allow the zone transfer from ZoneEdit side but I have no idea how to do that. I tried "force retransfer option but got an error"

Ok, I got this now working.

I needed to set NS and A records from Iki side to "xfr0.zoneedit.com." and "64.68.198.91" instead. And allow all 50 ip addresses of iki to ZoneEdit allowed zone transfer IP addresses. After that I was able to do that force retransfer.
