    It's unlikely you are authoritative for your IP's reverse zone. The best people to contact would be your ISP or hosting company and request them set up a PTR or (unlikely they'll agree to this) ask if they can delegate management to you.

    You can do an ARIN WHOIS lookup on your IP to see who is currently authoritative for it. Just search in the upper right your mail servers IP at the link below.

    Example:
    http://whois.arin.net/rest/net/NET-12-0-0-0-2/pft

    You need to contact whoever owns the IP address you use. They are authoritative for it in setting up PTR records.

    Hi, i have the same problem as TA.

    I have gotten the ISP to delegate the rdns authority to my server ip. Is there a way to check that it is really done.

    And how do I configure in my webmin the rdns for the range of IPs.

    For example :

    my rdns server : dns.xxx.com
    my ips : 111.111.111.20-30

    Hope can have step by step as i am really noob in configuration of dns.

    I have a record file below which doesnt work.

    $ttl 3600
    20-30.111.111.111.in-addr.arpa. IN SOA dns.xxx.com. webmaster.xxx.com. (
    2011062800
    3600
    3600
    3600
    3600 )
    20-30.111.111.111.in-addr.arpa. IN NS dns.xxx.com.
    111.111.111.20-30.in-addr.arpa. IN PTR dns.xxx.com.
