I am looking to transfer a co.za (South African) domain onto my server, but I am getting the following message back from the co.za registry:
;; The Nameserver "ns.<my domain>." at IP "<my ip>"
;; does not have a reverse FQDN entry and as such will be rejected.
;; A 'dig -x <my ip>' gives:-

As far as I can see I need to setup reverse lookups on my name servers? I thought this was already done, but apparently not. Please can someone point me in the direction of how to do it?
My name servers have been working fine for over a year, seemingly without reverse lookup? Is that normal?
Thanks in advance,
