WMCS NAT address missing forward dns records
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The WMCS NAT address ( has a reverse pointer record to, but there is no corresponding forwards record:

taavi@vimpale:~ % host domain name pointer
taavi@vimpale:~ % host
Host not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

This causes some systems (such as Libera Chat) not trust the reverse pointer record and instead falls back to the plain IP address.
