Yes, that sounds quite familiar; it matches my vague recollection of
others who've had trouble connecting to elsie.  If you adjust your DNS
records I think you'll find that your problem goes away.  I suggest
getting your secondary DNS servers up to speed, too; currently they
don't exist or don't respond (this goes both for the PTR record and
for the A record).
