The in-addr.arpa entry defines the "IP" and points to the A record name.
But... I'm not sure if we're understanding each other very well.
I do have update permissions on our name server. What I would like to have the following example done.
User requested that the IP they own dynamically get updated by the name servers THEY own. So basically I need to know what would go into the line below:
10 IN PTR dns1(or NS1?).whatever.com. (??) <---does the the users name server go in there or is it more complicated?
Sorry for being such a newbie, I only have basic DNS skills.
