Clueful DNS Contact at XO?
We have some Direct Internet Access (DIA) through XO. We have several netblocks with them and would like to get the IN-ADDR.ARPA domains for these blocks delegated to us. Should be just a couple of NS records in the parent zone, right? No big deal, right? After several attempts over years and months to get this done, I'm appealling for an out-of-band source. All DNS stuff is handled through the Web Hosting end of the house, but we have no web hosting accounts, only DIA. Plus, our DIA account dates far enough back (to Concentric days), that the DNS servers that do secondary for some of our forward zones aren't even ones that the web hosting people run. (Not that this really should have anything to do with IN-ADDR.ARPA zones, but try explaining that to the phone droid.) This all causes much confusion, and I never seem to get anywhere. It would be really super-duper cool if we could even get RFC2317-style delegation for some /27's we also have, but I was always afraid I'd hear the *pop* of the head on the other end of the phone exploding if I brought that up. -- Crist J.
