[cobalt-users] Re: [Cobalt] [raq2] security update help


Well, your "netstat -n" _does_ pull up instantly, but I'm not sure
what's wrong with the dns records:

atoznet.com 	 	-> 		A record
raq7.atoznet.com 	-> 		primary
www.atoznet.com 	-> 		A record
ftp.atoznet.com 	->	www.atoznet.com 	alias
news.atoznet.com 	->	news.ezzi.net 		alias
pop.atoznet.com 	->	atoznet.com 		alias
smtp.atoznet.com 	->	ezzi.net 			alias 	->	atoznet.com 		reverse pointer 	->	raq7.atoznet.com 	reverse 	->	www.atoznet.com 	reverse
atoznet.com 		->	atoznet.com 		mx

other than the fact that I seem to have two reverse pointers

Now, the server dns1.free-dns.com is listed a a secondary name server.
I'm sure this is the dumbest question in the history of the internet
but... should I have a record to them here? Should he be updating his records?

Thanks for your help, I'm sure these questions are pretty primitive to
you guys, but a ringer to me.
