bind9 reverse dns zone issue !
i need to make my reverse zone works to pass gmail,yahoo,msn ptr record check !
i used some tutorials on linux forums to make my reverse zone , the only thing that was mysterious is that all tutorials use class c ip addressees and it seems they use their reverse zone only for local purposes !
i have a class a ip assigned and i need reverse dns query for it !
the issue is that when i ssh to vps i can dnslookup my ip address and it returns my domain. but when i dslookup in internet , it says can't find the domain for your ip !
suppose that my ip address is : 22.214.171.124
i have named my zone : 250.140.210.69.in-addr.arpa
i know that this information is insufficient but the forum raise an error when i submit zone files content cause of external urls blah blah !!
If the service provider hasn't delegated those pointer records to your server you are going to have to ask them to update their records for you.

above if you run your vps at home - thus use an IP from your ISP
if you run your server on a regular hosting company (server farm) then you either ask your host
or in many cases (my host) the host has a customer control panel for your basic stuff such as reverse dns
if your server hosted, login to your customer account and look if there is a config option for you
