reverse dns not propagating
Posted on 2004-04-02
I have an ns server with a reverse zone that isnt propagating its way out to the internet.
There are other records held on same server that are working properly, it just seems to be the reverse zone for my reverse lookup of my mail server.
The configuration is redhat9 using bind with a webmin interphase
when i do an nslookup of our dns server it works fine but no other outside dns query works.
example of nslookup of ns1.cyberbranch.com
22.214.171.124.in-addr.arpa name = mail.csc1.com
84.146.63.in-addr.arpa nameserver = ns2.cyberbranch.com
84.146.63.in-addr.arpa nameserver = ns1.cyberbranch.com
ns1.cyberbranch.com internet address = 126.96.36.199
ns2.cyberbranch.com internet address = 188.8.131.52
here is the actual record stored on our dns
84.146.63.in-addr.arpa. IN SOA ns1.cyberbranch.com. hostmaster.cyberbranch.com. (
84.146.63.in-addr.arpa. IN NS ns1.cyberbranch.com.
84.146.63.in-addr.arpa. IN NS ns2.cyberbranch.com.
184.108.40.206.in-addr.arpa. IN PTR mail.csc1.com.
I have asked our vendor (qwest) wether there was a problem with reverse dns and is it allowed. They sent me back saying that they do not have any restrictions on reverse dns. I have an email with their dns department but it takes so long for them to reply I want to gather more detail.
