Hi,

i would also like to generate rev mappings? so that host 1.2.3.4 resolves to a.foo.bar.
is that possible?

Most certainly, but first you must create a zone for the reverse record to be created in. In your example, you'd create the zone "2.3.4.in-addr.arpa" and within that zone, you'd create a PTR record for 1.

Wouldn't that be the zone "3.2.1.in-addr.arpa" ?
(Because I can't get it to work)...
Or doesn't it matter anyway, what or how it's named?

OK,

another follow-up to my own post.
Seems it does work, I just seem to have mis-typed some IP while dig'ing the server.

Oh-my...


cheers,
