in thread net::dns::update and in-addr.arpa ??

I now believe that the issue is what I mentioned, you are not updating foo.com; you are updating in-addr.arpa. Try making that the arg to new. Also I presume the $ before the IP is a typo?

HTH, --traveler

    10 years later and I have this exact same problem. Can't figure out how to add a PTR record using Net::DNS. I wonder if OP ever figured this out...

    The syntax of my rr_add is: rr_add(X.XXX.XXX.XX.in-addr.arpa 3600 PTR hostname.mydomain.com.)

    Is this correct? Thanks in advance...
    # Create the update packet: my $update = Net::DNS::Update->new($OURDOMAIN); # Add the PTR record: $update->push(update => rr_add("$rev 3600 PTR $hst")); # Send the update to the zone's primary master. my $res = Net::DNS::Resolver->new; $res->nameservers("$OURNMSERV"); my $reply = $res->send($update);
      Resolved. Do a 'dig -x' on a valid IP address on the network. The "AUTHORITY SECTION" shows the in-addr.arpa zone to use for the 'new Net::DNS::Update' parameter.
