How to set up Active Directory
Authored by: ktappe on May 04, '04 12:44:13PM

Are you using DHCP? If so, the reverse DNS problem is your network admin's fault, not yours.

And if they try to deny you support, tell them you are not asking for support for your Mac, you are asking them to do their job. Lack of reverse DNS is a server misconfiguration that would affect any client regardless of OS. Any sysadmin who doles out IP addresses that are not configured for reverse lookup has not properly configured his server. There are several websites out there (though I fear I cannot recall one right now) that won't even let you on if your reverse DNS lookup fails.

If all else fails, put a PC on your desk, try to visit one of those sites, then tell your sysadmin that your WINDOWS COMPUTER needs reverse DNS configured. Then put your Mac back. :-)
