Does anybody know how to set a reverse DNS for a windows 2000 server. I have set the reverse DNS on the server but it seems not to be working. Does anybody have a guide or anything that you think would help me?

Thanks,

If you want to make sure your KMS running on Windows 2000 is correctly reverse DNS-ed by other systems on the internet, you should make sure the exact domain address of that Windows 2000 machine is listed as (on of the) A-records of that domain on the Internet, not on the machine itself.

I assume this is your question, because you're asking in a KMS forum. If not, ignore me :)

In the mails you send from KMS is mentioned your server IP address and its domain name (normally the machine name combined with the mail domain). When the receiving mailserver does a reverse DNS lookup of the IP address, (on of) the returned domain(s) should contain the machine.domain.com mentioned in the mails.

This is not something you can arrange on your server itself, but something you should arrange on the internet, in the DNS where your domain is kept.

Reverse DNS is not in the same DNS as your domain unless your ISP hosts your domain's DNS. It will be handled by your ISP (to whom the IP addresses have been allocated), so either you should contact them to get reverse DNS set up, or they may have a control panel to allow you to do it.
