No Reverse-DNS (PTR) is assigned to IP


I have designed DNS using webmin. I don't know how to set up reverse-DNS (PTR)

How do i set up those now?

Well you would need a DNS server with an appropriate reverse look up zone on it. If you don't know how to go about doing it, I'm not sure why you care about setting it up. http://www.zytrax.com/books/dns/ch3/

If you don't know, don't worry about it.
