Another user's name in my tunnel endpoint reverse DNS
« on: September 12, 2011, 04:30:58 PM »

I have noticed that the IPv6 addresses of both ends of one my tunnels have extra reverse DNS records, in addition to the correct ones:
Code: [Select]
1.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.7.0.9.0.8.0.f.1.0.7.4.0.1.0.0.2.ip6.arpa domain name pointer mathac-1.tunnel.tserv5.lon1.ipv6.he.net.
1.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.7.0.9.0.8.0.f.1.0.7.4.0.1.0.0.2.ip6.arpa domain name pointer chrise-1.tunnel.tserv5.lon1.ipv6.he.net.
2.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.7.0.9.0.8.0.f.1.0.7.4.0.1.0.0.2.ip6.arpa domain name pointer chrise-1-pt.tunnel.tserv5.lon1.ipv6.he.net.
2.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.7.0.9.0.8.0.f.1.0.7.4.0.1.0.0.2.ip6.arpa domain name pointer mathac-1-pt.tunnel.tserv5.lon1.ipv6.he.net.
My username is chrise - perhaps mathac is a user who had a tunnel with these addresses in the past, and the records were not cleaned up?

Email ipv6@he.net and alert them to it

Its just a stale DNS entry. I'll get it cleaned up.

Should something like this be sent to ipv6@he.net or to dnsadmin@he.net ?

ipv6@he.net, as it is unrelated to the dns.he.net service
