rDNS not delegating?

I've set my rDNS name servers to my dns server and have added the rdns records like so...

6.1.c.   86400   IN   SOA   ns1.mysite.com. admin.mysite.com. (
               2011013008   ; Serial
               10800   ; Refresh
               1800   ; Retry
               604800   ; Expire
               86400 )   ; Minimum TTL
6.1.c.   86400   IN   NS   ns1.mysite.com.
6.1.c.   86400   IN   NS   ns2.mysite.com.   86400   IN   PTR   ipv6.mysite.com.   86400   IN   PTR   ipv62a1.mysite.com.


zone "6.1.c." {
   type master;
    file "/etc/bind/48range.db";

I've set the ns1.mysite.com and ns2.mysite.com at my registrar and theres no problems with that as i've got a website hosted on my dns server.

I've also set bind9 in ubuntu to automatically bind to all ipv6 ips on the system:
listen-on-v6 { all; };

What could i be doing wrong?


When I resolve the /48, it's delegated to both he's name servers and yours.  If it calls HE's servers, it won't have an answer.  If it calls yours, it will, unless you can set up the HE servers with similar PTR records.

Go to your tunnel details page and make sure the HE servers are not listed in the RDNS delegation.


He's saying you have your rDNS in two places...HE and your servers.  If the query goes to HE, they won't recurse (ask your servers for the answer) so the requester won't get an answer.  If the query goes to your servers, they have the answer and will give that info to the requester.  

You should just have it on your servers


I do have the name servers setup to my server and not HEs but for some reason some requests are still going to he's. and i've deleted them from the dns.he.net??


This might be a prob with HE.  email ipv6@he.net


QuoteI've set the ns1.mysite.com and ns2.mysite.com at my registrar ....
Wrong place.  For the reverse zone, set them at the tunnelbroker interface.
