Reverse DNS Request

I'd like to have a reverse DNS entry created for one of my IP addresses. How do I go about this?

 

Thank you.

Hello.  I can't beleive I have to wait until Monday morning to get my reverse DNS corrected???  This should have been setup when I received my static IP addresses.

 

I also think there should be an automated system to set these up.  Lastly, I've had a heck of a time trying to get into the support center for business customers.  It keeps transferring me to the residential site and wants me to reboot my modem.  On top of that, it asks for my social that I've never given and then tries to hang up on me.  Once I got a live person, they didn't know what a PTR record, reverse DNS entry was, etc.  Comcast is really good at automating the voice system, why not automate this as well???  I'm kidding.

 

Please have someone contact me at my business phone number ASAP.

 

Thank you,

This is exactly why I want my PTRs delegated.  I don't want to have to contact Comcast more than once.  Setting up PTR delegation is a one time operation and then Comcast never has to handle another request from me for changing PTRs.  I fail to see why Comcast does not see the business sense in a common and ordinary ISP function as reverse DNS delegation.

I agree with others.  There should be an automated system to add/change/delete reverse dns requests and others related to static IPs.  At a minimum, when the statics are provisioned, comcast should ask if RDNS is needed.  I had forgotten about it and now my email servers are throwing all kinds of errors and my email are backing up.  I can change the address back to ATT for a while but that is counterproductive.

 

Thanks,

I don't understand your comment about 24/7.  I called twice on Saturday and when I finally got through to someone they said I had to wait until Monday because they were closed on the weekends.  So that is clearly not 24x7 support.

 

I then called and spoke to three different people today and though I gave them my information, none of them can make the ptr record change.  I then sent a PM to Michelle at comcast and I've only now received a note that my changes are made.  I checked them a few minutes ago an they still aren't active.

I don't understand How comcast handles the RDNS request, I have been waiting for months for a response from comcast tech. It's really frustrated with Comcast support.
