I’m attempting to configure my PTR records via Virtualmin and am not exactly sure how to do it.
I created the PTR DNS Record and entered the following fields:
Record Name: mail.domain.co
Reverse Address: my.ip.number
However, when I did a reverse lookup, with reverse-dns.org, nothing comes up. Am I leaving something out or does it just take a while to go through?
Thanks in advance!
In most cases, PTR records can only be set by your ISP. What you’d usually need to do is either give them a call and have them set it, or many ISP’s provide a web interface that allows you to set that.
There’s a handful of cases where ISP’s might delegate that to you in order to allow you to set that, but that’s fairly rare. I suspect the solution in your case would be to contact your provider and work with them to get your PTR records all setup.
