    How can I check who is authorative for a reverse DNS IP address? When do an
    nslookup on the address from within my own network, I get the reverse ptr but
    when I am outside i get the in-addr. AT&T supposedly delegated the reverse
    DNS to my DNS server (according to them when I call them). How can I check
    who is autorative at the current time for teh IP address?

  2. Jonathan gave you a detailed explanation. You can also simply use nslookup
    with the set q=soa switch.
