IPV6 BIND 9.2 PTR Record


Hi all,

We want to build PTR record with IPv6 IP in RedHat Entrprise Linux AS 3.0.

Our IPv6 IP is fe80::20f:feff:fe10:ece0/64
Hostname is hp-compac.com

Can any one let me know, how to consturct reverse lookup file with these settings.

Thank you in advance.

Using link addresses is highly inadvisable, but.. The PTR records use all the digits of the IPv6 address dotted together. For your address [fe80::20f:feff:fe10:ece0], the line would look like this:

Code:
0.e.c.e.0.1.e.f.f.f.e.f.f.0.2.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.8.e.f.ip6.int IN PTR hostname.example.com.
With that said, you should get a /64 or /48 from a tunnel broker such as Freenet6. They do UDP tunnels now too, which should pierce through most firewalls.

Thank you for your response, but still we are unsuccessfull

Our zone file is
----------------------------------------------------------
$TTL 86400
@ IN SOA 0.e.c.e.0.1.e.f.f.f.e.f.f.0.2.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.8.e.f.ip6.int root.hostname.example.com. (
1997022700 ; Serial
28800 ; Refresh
14400 ; Retry
3600000 ; Expire
86400 ) ; Minimum
IN NS hp-compac.com.
;254 IN PTR hp-compac.com.
0.e.c.e.0.1.e.f.f.f.e.f.f.0.2.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.8.e.f.ip6.int IN PTR hostname.example.com.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
named.conf file is having following entries...
zone "0.e.c.e.0.1.e.f.f.f.e.f.f.0.2.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.8.e.f.ip6.int" IN {
type master;
file "hostname.example.com.zone-rev";
allow-update { none; };
};
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
while checking with DIG command ( dig -x fe80::20f:feff:fe10:ece0) we are getting following out put.

; <<>> DiG 9.2.2 <<>> -x fe80::20f:feff:fe10:ece0
