[Bind-users] Zones and IPs outside of my subnet

yes you can assign various domains to an ip, even if you dont own the ip,
reversed lookup can only be done when the ISP is telling that you are
authorative for that reversed thingy.

my ip not owned by me and still i have my domains pointing at it
(Elvandar.org for example)

Onderwerp: [Bind-users] Zones and IPs outside of my subnet

Hi all,

   Another question, hopefully simpler than the last :).

   This may be obvious but if so I have missed the answer in my
n00biness. I have a friend who has a static IP assigned to him by his
ISP (totally unrelated to my ISP). He would like to have me add a zone
for a domain he has registered which I have no problem with. The
question I have though is can I simply point a zone at an IP I don't
directly have control of? If so, how do I handle the reverse lookup? I
have an '86.167.209.in-addr.arpa' record but I am also in control of
that IP slice. If I create another reverse lookup zone for his IP
address would that conflict with other reverse lookups elsewhere?

   Thanks for helping me get my noggin' around this!
