    Issue setting up reverse DNS with BIND9


    I setup a DNS server last month but didn't setup a reverse DNS server. Now I need to do it and having trouble getting things up and running, and hoping my Linux bros can help me out:
    I'll keep it real simple for you guys, so here it is:

    named.conf.local:

    zone "78.456.123.in-addr.arpa" {
    type master;
    notify no;
    file "/etc/bind/db.78";
    };
    db.78:

    ;
    ; BIND reverse data file for local loopback interface
    ;
    $TTL 604800
    @ IN SOA ns1.mydomain.com. me.mydomain.com. (
    1 ; Serial
    604800 ; Refresh
    86400 ; Retry
    2419200 ; Expire
    604800 ) ; Negative Cache TTL
    ;
    @ IN NS ns1.
    1.0.0 IN PTR ns1.mydomain.com.
    Where have I stuffed up (to be fair on myself, I was guided off an Ubuntu manual written for BIND8 (thats the best they've got))?

    Hey its all cool guys. Turns out I have to tell my ISP I am running a DNS server.

    I've decided to **** running a reverse DNS server anyway. I was only going to do it because some mail servers accuse me of being spam because I imagine they tried to do a reverse DNS on my IP. ****in noob cunts, should try a normal DNS so **** them. Dumb cunts!

    Thanks.
