    I did a DNS report for a domain and it showed Failed for "ip's public"

    Error: At least one of your NS records points to an IP address that is not a public IP. The problem IP(s) are:

    "IP Address" is not a public IP
    "IP Address" is not a public IP

    These IPs are not reachable on the Internet, causing DNS delays, extra resource usage, and possibly no DNS response.

    Why is that?

    How do I fix this?

    Also, for MX entry it showed Failed because the IP's ARE public.

    Go on, have a guess
    Check your IP addresses in ARIN, RIPE or APNIC (depending on where the server is located) and make sure that the IP address that is being reported isn't considered a private IP address.

    Incidentally,

    I just remembered that I've seen this before with someone at ServerMatrix (not you was it?) who had the same problem - it was a bug in the dnsreport.com scripts - could well be the exact same problem.

    Never experienced any problems with non-public IPs presuming they were issued thru a
    data center and were not simply on a private network.

    Maybe that was me? I know the ip's on my new servermatrix server are reporting as private ip's through dnsreports.
