    Hi 2gether

    I try to set up a PTR record for an IPv4 adress.

    I've done it exactly like the manual describes it on pages 208 to 210, that means, I've set up a master DNS Zone for in the ISPConfig3 Webpanel. Set the nameserver and the e-mail adress. Under the tab "records" I've set up (only) a PTR entry with the last octet of the IP-adress and the canonical hostname which is my mailservers adress (

    But something seems doesn't to work: If I go to the /etc/bind directory I see a zone.

    I don't get it why it always give an error.

    Do you have any hints? Thanks so much in advance.

    I added two NS records to the zone, but I still got the same issue.

    BTW: do I need to add a zone as (where the PTR record points to) or

    your NS entry should be NS <Zone> <DNS Server>

    NS 86400
    NS 86400
