How about the results of the dig I did on my IP, isn't that wrong? I don't know this stuff very well yet, but it said:
";; ANSWER SECTION:
xx.255.167.12.in-addr.arpa. 42424 IN CNAME xx.xx/xx.255.167.12.in-addr.arpa."
It has no mention of an actual domain name, is that a bit of a clue as to what is wrong?
Ideally, I think it should. Looking through the ISPConfig DNS tool screens, it looks like we can set up A, CNAME, MX, and SPF (txt) records. I don't see a tool for creating PTR records manually.
In my setup, ISPConfig is automatically building ptr records for me. Take a look in your bind9 data file directory (probably /var/lib/named/etc/bind) and see if you have a file named pri.z.y.x.in-addr.arpa, where your IP address is in the x.y.z block.
Note: doing "dig -t ptr @w.x.y.z w.x.y.z" where w.x.y.z is your IP address won't return your PTR records. The command needs to be "dig -t ptr @w.x.y.z z.y.x.z.in-addr.arpa". That ought to return your reverse DNS records.
