    mydns creates by it self
    ptr records for records it is aware of

    what mydns is not aware of is the subnet that the records belong to


    if I own subnet with netmask

    mydns will create a zone like this

    but this is wrong because I don't belong the whole class c subnet

    if I try to modify the zone with the right one which is

    I get

    what would the valid format be?

    ARPA-zones are always delegated in class C networks (/24 or 256 addresses) or bigger. There is no way to divide this into smaller subnets.

    If you don't own the whole /24 subnet, or (as in my case once) the APRA-delegation is not correctly set to your NS, contact the ARPA-administrator or your LIR (Local Internet Registrar). The correct person can be difficult to trace, but this command should set you on their track:

    dig +trace -x ipaddress
    (dig +trace -x

    after some reading I realized you are right

    after a conversation with my isp
    I made a zone that isn't working
    the zone name is eg. "32/"

    my isp tries to import this zone into his dns (he is using bind)
    but he gets "Transfer failed."

    my iptables is off
    and I have my isp dns servers into "Allow zone transfers to these IPs (comma separated list)"

    what could be wrong ??

    I've tried from another server that I have ispconfig installed
    to fetch the zone but I get

    in /etc/mydns.conf
    I have allow-axfr = yes

    where xx.xx.xx.xx = ipaddress of the server running mydns + mydnsconfig
