Rickard, Well, your "netstat -n" _does_ pull up instantly, but I'm not sure what's wrong with the dns records: atoznet.com -> 126.96.36.199 A record raq7.atoznet.com -> 188.8.131.52 primary www.atoznet.com -> 184.108.40.206 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 220.127.116.11/24 -> atoznet.com reverse pointer 18.104.22.168/24 -> raq7.atoznet.com reverse 22.214.171.124/24 -> www.atoznet.com reverse atoznet.com -> atoznet.com mx other than the fact that I seem to have two reverse pointers 126.96.36.199. 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. > > Clayton, don't change back to the old sysklogd... > The problems you are having is DNS related. > Is the machine you are using in the reverse DNS database?
