Message 7539 - Posted: 9 Nov 2007 | 19:15:40 UTC

Made a new account but would like to use the one attached to my home e-mail. My ISP does not accept anything e-mail that does not provide reverse DNS so I cannot get my account key. Can the moderator provide this to there ISP and provide me a way to get my key?


Reverse DNS for 217.67.229.55
Email link to resultsGenerated by www.DNSstuff.com


When the server was last reloaded, we had 131979 IP addresses banned.

Please email sales@dnsstuff.com to learn more.



Location: Netherlands [City: ]

Preparation:
The reverse DNS entry for an IP is found by reversing the IP, adding it to "in-addr.arpa", and looking up the PTR record.
So, the reverse DNS entry for 217.67.229.55 is found by looking up the PTR record for
55.229.67.217.in-addr.arpa.
All DNS requests start by asking the root servers, and they let us know what to do next.
See How Reverse DNS Lookups Work for more information.

How I am searching:
Asking f.root-servers.net for 55.229.67.217.in-addr.arpa PTR record:
f.root-servers.net says to go to ns3.nic.fr. (zone: 217.in-addr.arpa.)
Asking ns3.nic.fr. for 55.229.67.217.in-addr.arpa PTR record:
ns3.nic.fr [192.134.0.49] says to go to ns02.grafix-is.com. (zone: 229.67.217.in-addr.arpa.)
Asking ns02.grafix-is.com. for 55.229.67.217.in-addr.arpa PTR record: Reports that no PTR records exist [from 217.67.230.108].

Answer:
No PTR records exist for 217.67.229.55. [Neg TTL=1330560 seconds]

Details:
ns02.grafix-is.com. (an authoritative nameserver for 229.67.217.in-addr.arpa., which is in charge of the reverse DNS for 217.67.229.55)
says that there are no PTR records for 217.67.229.55.

To get reverse DNS set up for 217.67.229.55, you need to speak to your Internet provider. You could also
check with postmaster@grafix-is.com., who is in charge of the 229.67.217.in-addr.arpa. zone.

Note that all Internet accessible hosts are expected to have a reverse DNS entry (per RFC1912 2.1),
and many mailservers (such as AOL) will likely block E-mail from mailservers with no reverse DNS entry.

Even though you can't receive the email from PrimeGrid with your account key in it, you can still get your account key from your BOINC client's configuration files. Open the file "C:\Program Files\BOINC\account_www.primegrid.com.xml" in a text editor such as Notepad. (Just type the full file path that I mentioned into the Open dialog box; if you have BOINC in a different location than C:\Program Files\BOINC\, replace that part of the path accordingly.) You'll see near the top of the file a section labeled with <authenticator> at the beginning of the line and </authenticator> at the end. What's between the <authenticator> and </authenticator> tags is your account key. Simply copy and paste it out of there into wherever you'd like to store it.

In case you can't find the <authenticator> tags in the XML file, this screenshot (of my BOINC client's copy of that file, with my account key blocked out of course) may be helpful:

Please email admin@primegrid.com from the email address of the account you would like to retrieve the key if you can't recover it otherwise.

I will see what can be done about reverse DNS entries.
