    Reverse DNS question

    We have a server from Hetzner and We want to know if anybody knows what should we put as reverse dns ?and how can we ping it from outside to see if it works or not. we are confused about what to write in the input box given that we have set quite a few random names and we are not even sure how to use it and there is no support in this area

    Thanks in advance

    Generally it's the hostname of your server.

    server.yourdomain.com

    Are you confused because default values is something like this?

    34-23-34-53-reverse-static-dns.domain.com

    Just change to your hostname.

    Dont forget to configure your hostname on /etc/hosts

    =)

    Hope this help.

    Something like this may help you understand: http://remote.12dt.com/faq.php

    To do an rdns lookup, you can use this: http://remote.12dt.com/

    Lets assume I put XXX as 34-23-34-53 in your example . How can I know what the rest of domain is ? We have no idea what is the next part as in your example is -reverse-static-dns.domain.com . Hetzner also provides no information. given we put anything we cant use it because we do not know what it follows after our input. BUM!
