I am trying to setup a DNS server to resolve domain names on the internet, a nameserver, I host a few websites and at the moment I'm paying someone else to host my DNS, I want to now do it myself on my server (running apache2, and vsftp on it already)
I am using SUSE, and BIND9 for the DNS, I have set everything up already but when I perform a DNS ticket update, they keep emailing me to say that the DNS is not delegated properly, and the following errors:
The Nameserver at 126.96.36.199 (server1.mydomain.co.za ??) does not appear
to have a reverse DNS entry. This means that this nameserver does not
comply with 'co.za' registration policies and can not currently be used.
Syntax/Cross-Checking provided info for Nameserver at 6a: server1.mydomain.co.za @ 188.8.131.52
IPv4: 184.108.40.206 ==> [WARN: No PTR records!]
FQDN: server1.mydomain.co.za ==> [WARN: No A records!]
I have tried to test the DNS from my side and I dont get these errors, I can also go into my browser on the server and type in mydomain.co.za and it resolves to my server, but it doesnt work from any other machines on the internet, even machines in my LAN.
