I've very recently set up DNS servers, and I have a sneaking
suspicion there is something I'm doing wrong.
First, I did register my nameservers, so that's all set. In addition,
I did get my ISP to register the in.addr.arpa addresses for reverse
DNS, so that *should* be set.
But, when I try a reverse lookup on one of the IP addresses that
should have been registered, it doesn't work. But I'm not sure who's
fault that is.
In addidition, in my system logs, I get the following about once a day:
Aug 29 23:13:59 nanuuq named: bad referral
(136.241.63.in-addr.arpa !< 240.136.241.63.in-addr.arpa) from
But, none of these addresses are at all in my range, so I can't tell
what the problem is. And these errors are always for different
addresses, but always none in my range.
I have two nameservers, both running as masters.
In general, however, doing standard lookups from outside of my
network to my domains works fine, and I use my DNS servers internally
and that seems to work fine (every once in a long while I get a "host
not known" error for a host that I know exists, but then on retry,
