Another rDNS test failure :(
« on: May 04, 2011, 07:11:16 PM »

Really need a little help here as I'm starting to feel like I haven't got a clue what I'm doing!

I've been trying to get through the Professional test but continually get the "Your MX does not appear to have working RDNS " message. I've been at this now for two days and I'm no further forward, so I'm obviously missing something...

Running dig I get:

Code: [Select]
$ dig mx vostoksix.info

; <<>> DiG 9.7.1 <<>> mx vostoksix.info
;; global options: +cmd

Am I supposed to have my own DNS server for this?

Thanks for any help, getting a little despondent, truth be told :(

Thanks for the reply. The output from that dig:

Code: [Select]
$ dig -x 2001:470:1f0b:823::1

Curiously, it's finding my ISP?

Thanks anyway but I worked it out, so this can be closed.
