Hi,

I use tinydns as a DNS program and tinydns requires an IP to assign to a hostname. Honeypot gives me a hostname and I simply converted this to an IP.

Is this OK? If not, any ideas?

Thanks

Justin

No, you shouldn't point to the IP of our mail servers. We need to have the flexibility to change our mail server IPs. I'm surprised that tinydns doesn't allow MXs to point to a domain. Typically, DNS systems require MXs to point to a domain and, if anything, won't allow you to point them directly to an IP. I haven't used the tinydns software, but you might want to look through their documentation a bit and see if they have a work around.

You don't need to resort to using IP addresses to donate MX entries when using tinydns.

Here's an example (change mail2.example.org to the subdomain you are donating from your domain, and mx0.example.net to the target you are sent by the Project):

@mail2.example.org::mx0.example.net.:0:3600

Note: be sure to keep the trailing period on the target machine name.
