Hi,

Could any one tell me how to add a single reverse look up zone in Red hat for a /19 network

I know you can add multiple /24 class-full subnets. but I also know you can add variable length subnets.

so could any one point me in the direction of the correct syntax for RedHAT?

Cheers

This should show you how to configure bind for VLSM.

I have tried the standard

zone "0/19.x.x.x.in-addr.arpa" {
type master;
file "zone.0-19.x.x.x.in-addr.arpa";
allow quesy { any; };
};

and it loads OK but does not seem to catch any thing.

zone "0/19.x.x.x.in-addr.arpa" {
type master;
file "zone.0-19.x.x.x.in-addr.arpa";
allow quesy { any; };
};

One problem I see with the above is in bold.

Should be like...

allow-query { 127.0.0.1; net; };

that "any" works fine for our other reverse zones

The "any" isn't just what I was referring to. If you're configuration is "allow quesy {..." from a copy/paste, it is typo'd, and therefore wont do anything for you. Should be "allow-query {..." in your bind configuration.

I have looked around at other sites to see if I can find anything different, and all signs point to this working. I will keep looking.

I came across some thing that says it only work for /24 - /30. ie subnets of a class C.

for larger sub-nets the ISP has to delegate a subset of a class B say, and then the customer advertise the entire class B back up.

In this was the ISP will only forward request that you own for your section of the class B.

Now I checked with our ISP and they will only forward these request to us so I can get away with using

18.172.addr-in.arpa

for example, with out worring about affecting any one upstream by answering some thing that does not belong to me.

Seems strange but this was the only documentation i could find about a /19 reverse lookup zone.

Thank you for all the help, but reserching further and it does seem you can only use the subnet mask on subsets of a class C network, no swhere have I found any thing to show examples of class B or above
