Hi all,

I'm trying to add a new external host to our DNS (BIND 4.9.5-P1).
I added the entry to db.ourdomain that looks like this:
newhost IN A
and the entry to that looks like this:
xxx IN PTR
and restarted it.

An nslookup to both the new ip and the new hostname work from
our network, and a nslookup to the new name from outside our network
works fine, but an nslookup to the new ip from outside returns non-existent
host/domain. What else do I have to change to get the outside to be able to
do gethostbyaddress correctly? I've looked in the O'Reilly "DNS and BIND"
book but the only thing it mentions for this problem is that the PTR isn't
set up
right, but it is setup just like the rest of the hosts, all of which work
fine. Anyone
have any ideas?
