    Hi,
    I follow several tutorial at this forum and with what i know to set up reverse dns for my server.
    My server has local IP to be 192.168.1.2, 2 nameservers are registered at ns1.domain.com and
    ns2.domain.com which are pointed toward same IP at 64.62.250.79

    1. I created zone 250.62.64.in-addr.arpa
    2, right after I created zone, I saw this
    250.62.64.in-addr.arpa. IN 86400 NS henna.ARIN.NET.
    250.62.64.in-addr.arpa. IN 86400 NS figwort.ARIN.NET.
    250.62.64.in-addr.arpa. IN 86400 NS chia.ARIN.NET.
    250.62.64.in-addr.arpa. IN 86400 NS dill.ARIN.NET.
    250.62.64.in-addr.arpa. IN 86400 A 64.62.250.79
    localhost.250.62.64.in-addr.arpa. 86400 A 127.0.0.1
    250.62.64.in-addr.arpa. IN MX 250.62.64.in-addr.arpa.

    I added these 2 below
    68 IN PTR ns1.domain.com.
    68 IN PTR ns2.domain.com.

    Are those correct? It seem fine to me but Reverse DNS llook still shows no PTR record

    can you please help!
    Thanks!

    Usually this record is not necessary as most data centers will setup reverse dns through their control panel for your server. If they do not offer this, you may need to contact them.

    thanks!
    what do u mean by that?

    Our server collocation, they don't have DNS. We have to build it ourself, and they will relay their queries through it.

    Are those set correctly?

    thanks
