As with many new users.. iam stuck with this reverse DNS stuff !! :eek:
I want to do this myself rather than requesting my DC to do it for me.

Assuming..
My domain : mysite.com
Static IP : 10.1.1.1
I will be only hosting one domain on my dedicated server



What should i specify in those fields to solve the rDNS problem ?
or is there anything else that i should take care of ?

usually the PTR records (mostly used to create irc vhosts which i assume in your case), is modified from the master dns zones of the IP addresses.

my steps are as follows:

1 - create zones for the ip addresses
2 - add the zones in named.conf
3 - create a simple shell script to allow you to modify and reload named
4 - enjoy!
