    Hi there to all,
    I recently camed across a problem with the reverse zones / PTR for a couple IP's i have.

    I use ISPConfig 2.X an the problem is like this.

    In ISPConfig i do NOT have any PTR records for these IP's . However, if i run host 86.106.x.x i get a reverse name .
    [email protected]:~# host 86.106.xx.xx domain name pointer

    If i try a ping on or a dig or anything else i do not get the IP.

    I have checked in /var/named/chroot/var/named for any and found nothing.

    Is there any way to erase / delete / make that reverse disappear?

    Thank you in advance for your responses and for reading my post.

    Best regards,

    You get that reversed info from the nameserver that is hosting the zone. afaik nothing you can do about it.

    Hope i have undestood right.

    You say that the reverse DNS appears because it is hosted on the primari server (on wich is the master DNS server).

    If so, that is not a problem because that server is mine.

    I want to know how can i erase those records because they do not appear anywhere.

    Thank you for your reply

    If you supply me with the complete ip address, i can start poking dns servers :)

    but ehm,

    1. The server at ip 86.106.x.x is yours?
    2. Is it hosted at a datacenter? or is it connected through your home ISP?

    Hi there,
    The IP class and server are mine. Hosted in my own center.

    I have solved the problem by eliminating those PTR records from the IS Confid MySQL DataBase.
    You just edit the database and go to the ptr table and from there you delete the records you want.

    In my case this was the only way to do this because those records did not appear in the ISP Config panel.

    Thank you all for your responses and i hope this will help other people in my situation.
