They have been allocated to us and they were working fine.
Looks like the IP Addresses which where allocated to
you via GG where once
given to Xtra to use and then reallocated to you later on.
Getting the Reverse DNS changed is easy enough by contacting your Contact @
GG (or your ISP who allocated your IP addresses to you)
Has 169.55.210.in-addr.arpa. been allocated to your Name Servers in the
past? You can't just presume that they are pointing no where or to your
_unless_ it was working.. and then changed..
