Thanks, I did what I could, but don't know how to update the DNS on the 
Centos server. Would the situation be clearer if you could
1) See the server
2) Give it the needed commands directly?
I am still keen to learn about these things, especially if one of you 
can demonstrate how they are done.

PS: Due to the importance of this server, I cannot move it off site or 
shut it down for long. This is much more your territory than mine.
