    how to forward reverse dns subnet


    I have the zone record 0.16.271.in-addr.arpa which is working fine.

    The NS for that zone is setup for my own name server.

    I however would like to forward requests for 172.16.0.224/28 to another name server. How would I do this?


    If it makes any difference, i am using powerdns

    thanks

    powerdns is fine. Easy to manage with a web gui. It is nice not having to restart the daemon when making chagnes and also no zone transfers or anything. All done by mysql replication.


    Only using the authorotative powerdns server with djbdns. Not so sure about the powerdns recursor yet.

    One downside that affected me is that it doesn't support multi-horizon views.

    Thanks, for the link. will check it out

    There is a gui for PowerDNS now? I didn't know this. Maybe when I start to look into PowerDNS I'll ping you some more if that is OK?

    As to restarting the daemon, you don't have to do this just use rndc.

    Yeah we just switched to a DNS appliance with a DB back end. Now I have to do things differently then I used to. Everything is now hooked together so that you cannot just goto a zone and delete the CNAME record you need to goto the A record and delete the CNAME. If you delete just the CNAME record it deleted the A record and everything else ascoated with it. I learned that one the hard way.
