hi folks,

i'm having an odd problem with reverse lookups on my system:
        Linux 2.0.28, bind 4.9.5p1.

basically, zifi is currently zifi.genetics.utah.edu (155.100.229.31).
however, it will (shortly) become padraig.org, with a CNAME making it
really zifi.padraig.org using the same IP as above.  i am applying for
the padraig.org domain name.

the university will not act as my primary nameserver for some legal
reason so i'm just going to do it myself.

so, the problem seems to be that i have this named.boot file in which
i am declaring myself authoritative for the 155.100.229.* domain.
obviously, i am just one machine on the university's net.  (some
things are commented out because padraig.org does not yet exist).

;  Boot file for zifi caching name server
;
directory /var/named
;
; type          domain                          source file or host
cache           .                               named.cache
primary         0.0.127.in-addr.arpa            pri/localhost
;primary         padraig.org                     pri/padraig.org
;primary                229.100.155.in-addr.arpa        pri/229.100.155
;
; put domains i'm a secondary ns for here
;
;secondary      hostname.dom                    sec/hostname.dom

in order for reverse lookups to work for a computer (say bsx) i have
to add an entry to the files pri/padraig.org and pri/229.100.155 for
it.  forward lookups work fine (ie, nslookup bsx.genetics.utah.edu
gives the right IP) but reverse lookups fail if i don't have an
entry.  

i have read the FAQs, and most of the Linux Networking Guide and the
DNS HOWTO but i don't recall seeing an answer to this.

i have included the other relevant files at the end of this message.

thanks for any suggestions you might provide.

Without studying this any further I'd be willing to suggest that if your
upstream provider (i.e. UofU) does not want to be a primary or secondary
name server for you, you won't be able to set up your domain for access
from the outside world.  

For example, if you set things up like you are suggesting and I try to
telnet to your machine (padraig.org), how would I get a DNS resolution
for your machine if your upstream provider does not route such traffic?

Will the UofU even let you set up your own domains on their network? I
doubt this. I think this partly stems from why UofU started kicking
non-UEN network customers off their network about two years ago.

Let's try something:

$ whois 155.100.0.0

  University of Utah (NET-UTAH-MED-NET)
     Computer Center
     Merrill Engineering Bldg
     University of Utah
     Salt Lake City, UT 84112

     Netname: UTAH-MED-NET
     Netnumber: 155.100.0.0

     Domain System inverse mapping provided by:

     NS.UTAH.EDU                        128.110.124.120
     FIBER.UTAH.EDU             128.110.132.99

     Record last updated on 29-Mar-93.

So that answers our question. You can't do what you want simply because
the 155.100.0.0 network doesn't belong to you.

Unless you have a complete class C address space to yourself you will
have to use "Classless in-arpa name delegation" as per the internet
draft of that name (or at least something like that).

Who knows it may even have an RFC number by now.

Absolutely correct. One warez site did *exactly* this...
I think their domain went on 'On Hold' status shortly after
the university found out. ;-) (Coincidence?)

 Ok you can have the domain on The U's Network, no problem. The problem
is for RARP the U' is the server for the Network address, so you would
have to have your 229.100.155.in-addr.arpa. table on there RDNS server
with the rest of the network address. Now the question is Will they let
you Have a RDNS entry for you domain on there server, I think they could
seconday for the RARP table, from your primary, but there server would
still be access first for the RDNS.
 I cant remeber how they have there RDNS setup, so in short.

 host 155.100.229.1     # will access the UofU's Name server
 host padraig.org       # will access your name server

Unless the computer department would work with you for the RDNS instead
of DNS. you would be stuck with you IP returning as zifi.genetics.utah.edu
and padraig.org as your IP.
 I recall (but im not sure) them working with somboady else for this but
it was under med.utah.edu and that could be why, but it was a couple of
years back.

 (I really dont like cros-posting, should have posted only to utah.linux)

running my own domain under the university's domain

Post by The System Administrato » Thu, 23 Jan 1997 04:00:00


You must be authoritative for the 29.100.155.in-addr.arpa domain to
provide reverse for it.  You wouldn't believe how many people I explain
this to on a daily basis.

You can tell your DNS it is primary for 155.100.29.0 but ONLY YOUR machine
and people who use YOUR dns will get those reverse lookups.

As far as reverse lookups not working unless you have an entry in the
blah.domain file for the address, it all depends on what is doing the
lookup.  an nslookup xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx will work.  (or at least it does for
me on my 10.x.x.x network).  If you have an irc server or something else
doing the lookup however, most times, they do both forward and reverse
lookups, compare the two and if they don't match, will only show the IP
address as it is the most likely of the two.

Denying him the reverse DNS he's requesting *is* UofU's technical

The address-space was allocated to them. Name space is relatively
infinite which is why you can register this thing. Address-space
on the other hand is quite limited.

Unless UofU has approved the charter of "padraig.org" I see no
reason whatsoever that they should abide by it's usage of their
resources!

   How does setting up a domain name (e.g., zifi.padraig.org)
   which points to an existing address (155.100.229.31) use
   up their address space?

    That is certainly their choice.  We, on the other hand,
    have decided to allow student and staff registered
    domains, since it costs us virtually nothing to do so,
    and is a small bit of goodwill.  If it attracts or
    retains even 1 student it has way more than paid for
    itself.

1. machine with own domain name on university network

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

hi folks,

i am currently running linux on a machine that is connected to the net
via the university's ethernet.  for a variety of reasons, i will be
obtaining my own domain name for this machine.  the university
ethernet will continue to be my 'network access provider' but the
machine will have a name like zifi.org instead of
zifi.genetics.utah.edu.  

what do i need to configure on my system to do all of the DNS stuff?

thanks,

- -pjf
