server finch is a slave dns server to blackbird (and has been for a long time). blackbird's reverse dns record looks as attached. As you can probably guess from the last line, it is not even constructed by me but generated by ISPConfig.
As you can see there is no reference to finch.chillifire.net in there. Also, if it was a reverse DNS problem coming from this set up, the command telnet login02.chillifire.net should point to finch.chillifire.net everywhere. The fact is it does so only on finch. There must be some configuration on finch somewhere, that is nowhere else. I just cannot think of what that configuration could be out side /etc/hosts and Bind DNS (which both do not seem problematic).
Any other ideas?
