    I am not quite sure how to set up my Reverse DNS entries or my A records for WWW Service. I have been checking my progress with http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsre...ut-studios.com and am still getting failed and warn messages and not sure what I need to do to fix them.

    I have got most of it working thanks to the help of this thread.

    In the report they gave you, both warnings can be safely ignored, and there might be nothing you can do about one of the failures. The 2nd fail however need to be fixed immediately.

    1) FAIL - Reverse DNS entries for MX records
    ERROR: None of your mail server(s) seem to have reverse DNS (PTR) entries (I didn't get any responses for them). RFC1912 2.1 says you should have a reverse DNS for all your mail servers. It is strongly urged that you have them, as many mailservers will not accept mail from mailservers with no reverse DNS entry.

    2) FAIL - Connect to mail servers
    I could not connect to any of your mailservers!
    mail.blackout-studios.com: Could not connect without glue.

    Solutions:

    Fascinating. So mail can actually be refused without reverse lookups. That dns report script is really nifty (/me considers writing his own). Anyway, let's take a look at what your zone's got...

    http://www.dollardns.net/cgi-bin/dns....com&submit=DS

    The first thing screaming at me when I look at that is the mail host in the MX record. There's no IP associated with it. No wonder the dns report failed(2) to connect to your mail server! You need to add a record like the below:

    mail A 68.0.184.15

    Now to the interesting requirement for a reverse lookup for the mail domain specifically. After adding the record above, your mail domain can be resolved to the IP address. But how 'bout resolving your IP address back to the domain? Here's a lookup below trying to resolve your IP address:

    http://www.dollardns.net/cgi-bin/dns...mit=Reverse+IP

    By typing the IP in the 'name' field, and clicking 'Reverse IP', DNS Crawler will reverse the IP into a properly formatted IP lookup. In your case, you need to create the following zone to handle this request:

    zone "15.184.0.68.IN-ADDR.ARPA" {
    type master;
    file "15.184.0.68.IN-ADDR.ARPA.zone";
    };

    The filename can be anything you want of course. But you need to add an SOA and PTR record under that zone. The PTR record will look something like this:

    @ PTR mail.blackout-studios.com

    My example reverse lookup zone:

    http://www.dollardns.net/bind/127.0.0.rev

    And finally, why did I say there may be nothing you can do about it? Cause your ISP owns your IP address. If somebody were to ask the root servers about that IP, it will be forwarded to your ISP's dns servers and they themselves specify the domain that the IP points to. There is a chance that if you contact your ISP, they may change their entry for you - or forward requests for that IP to you - but otherwise you'll just have to deal with the big red FAIL marring your report. :-)

    Send me a private message if you would like me to setup your DNS for you for a price of your choosing. This is the preferred method if your DNS needs to be fixed/setup fast and you don't have the time to bounce messages back and forth on a forum. Also, check out these links:

    Ok, I made the changes and I have a whole new error that I don't understand any better than the first ones. It is something to do with "Aceptance of Postmaster Address". And on top of that my address is not linking to my www server.

    those are not dns server related problems. Now you're working with your SMTP server. You need to accept these email addresses:

    postmaster@blackout-studios.com
    abuse@blackout-studios.com
    postmaster@[68.0.184.15]

    Yes, include the brackets when you configure your SMTP server.

    I created your zone in the trial account of DollarDNS Zone Manager to give you your example. This link will only last so long as somebody doesn't delete the zone from the account.

    Then click here to login and view the zone:
    http://my.dollardns.net/login.pl?UID...servertalk.org

    If somebody did delete it, try this link to create it first:
    http://my.dollardns.net/dns/master/c...servertalk.org

    And your root.hint link doesn't work. But here's the one I distribute with my example config:

    I've edited my post after you replied. If the link didn't work, it will now:

    I just called my root.hint file "named.ca" cause that's the default name under linux.

    let's take it to the other thread you started. I didn't notice it before.

    Error 1067

    Hello,
    I have read the postings so far and tried to apply them to my case, however, I still cant find solution.
    My problem is am having error 1067: Windows could not start the named service on Local computer. Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.

    Below is my named file

    include "c:\zpanel\bin\bind\etc\key.conf";
    options {
    directory "C:/zpanel/bin/bind/zones/";
    version "zpanel_145911968";
    allow-transfer { none; };
    recursion yes;
    };
    controls {
    inet 127.0.0.1 port 53
    allow { 127.0.0.1; } keys { "rndc-key"; };
    };
    logging {
    channel bind_log{
    file "c:/zpanel/logs/bind/bind.log" versions 3 size 2m;
    severity info;
    print-severity yes;
    print-time yes;
    print-category yes;
    };
    category default{
    bind_log;
    };
    };
    zone "." IN {
    type hint;
    file "root.servers.zone";
    };
    zone "0.0.127.in-addr.arpa" IN {
    type master;
    file "localhost.rev.zone";
    };
    zone "localhost" IN {
    type master;
    file "localhost.zone";
    };
    include "c:\zpanel\configs\bind\etc\named.conf";


    I ran command - named -g and I got this error:
    C:\zpane\configs\bind\etc\named.conf :4: undefined ACL 'all'
    loading configuration: failure
    exiting due to fatal error

    My OS is windows server2008 r2 and am using ZPanel 10.0.2. All zones loaded without any errors.

    Please kindly help
    Thanks

    Problem solved by changing all to any in allow-transfer { any; }; in zones and config file

    Thanks for your help.
