    Hello everyone,

    I recently became interested in messing around with reverse DNS as I thought hey, why not give it a shot?

    So I setup the rdns with the datacenter, ex. static.minknet.com.

    But im not entirely sure what to do for the DNS records.

    Also, when I emailed a Craigslist ad, I got this error message back:
    host mxi5p.craigslist.org [208.82.236.165]: 554 5.7.1<unknown[192.168.123.231]>:Client host
    rejected:rDNS/DNS_validation_failed._Please_setup_matching_DNS_and_rDNS_records:_
    http://bind8nt.meiway.com/itsaDNSmess.cfm

    So that tells you right there it isn't setup completely.

    Im not new to Linux what so ever, I just never had any interest or time to mess around with rDNS.


    Thanks!

    static.minknet.com

    Please make sure that you have created A record for static in minknet.com domain name and pointed it to your server IP address. Otherwise, it will not work.

    Also, the rDNS record will take some time to propagate across the globe.
