    I want to add ftp.mysite.com to my DNS template.

    I've tried this and it works:
    Code:
    [ZONE]
    origin={DOMAIN}.
    ns={NS1}.
    mbox={EMAIL}.
    refresh=28800
    retry=7200
    expire=604800
    minimum=86400
    ttl=86400
    
    [DNS_RECORDS]
    A|{DOMAIN}.|{IP}|0|86400
    A|www|{IP}|0|86400
    A|mail|{IP}|0|86400
    A|ftp|{IP}|0|86400
    NS|{DOMAIN}.|{NS1}.|0|86400
    NS|{DOMAIN}.|{NS2}.|0|86400
    MX|{DOMAIN}.|mail.{DOMAIN}.|10|86400
    As you can see I've made and A record to achieve this. Is this the correct way or should a CNAME be used instead?

    Thats up to you. I would use a A-Record as you did.

    Thanks till. I'm a little unsure on which occasions to use which though. If you or someone else can explain please.

    hey Till, should I port-forward anything to my dns servers?
