Reverse lookup setup on Windows 2000 DNS
Posted on 2003-02-22
I have a windows 2000 server. I have setup DNS and the only thing I am confused about issetting up reverse lookup zone.
I set it up as a Active integrated Zone, and when it asked for the Network ID, i specified that as 192.168.112 (The internal network is 192.168.112.x and the server itself is 192.168.112.1)
I then read somewhere that when setting up the reverse lookup zone, the network ID should be provided in reverse, i.e. 112.168.192
Which is correct?
The domain although setup like a "real" domain, is non exsistent. The dns is not configured as a root server. All unknown queries are forwarded to the ISP DNS.
So basically, my question is when setting up the reverse lookup zone, how should i specify the Network ID.
