203-184-52-xx.callplus.net.nz is the reverse for 203.184.52.xx for example

But it is not a vaild dns record, which causes problem with some IRC servers.

An attempt at logging a fault via the call center was met with the usual frustrations and ignorance.

Can someone from slingshot please advice if this is going to be resolved soon?

Have you posted this on the Slingshot forums?

You'll probably get a quicker and more useful response there.

So you want support from Slingshot, yet you do not want to use their official forums?
Geekzone do not host their official forums, this is just a place to discuss Slingshot, their products, service etc.

As far as I am aware, the user "Slingshot" on these forums works in marketing, whereas there are a couple of users on the 'official' forums who works in network operations.

The Slingshot forums are not an Official support system, but do have great support for Tech questions.

I would say, try and disable the Slingshot caching (via my account settings on Slingshot homepage) and see if the fixes your issue.

Nah, this isn't anything to do with cache or access, but the way SS have set up RDNS entries.
While they do have RDNS entries for the IP addresses that they're allocating, there is no record pointing the RDNS entry at the IP.

Example: 119.224.30.0 has an RDNS record of 119-224-30-0.callplus.net.nz.
However, if I was to try to traceroute to 119-224-30-0.callplus.net.nz, it won't get anywhere (since 119-224-30-0 is not a valid subdomain of callplus.net.nz)

Wow that beyond my level of geekness. I've asked the question on the Slingshot forums, to see if anyone there can help. http://forums.slingshot.co.nz/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=3255

BevinS from Slingshot replied.

Our reverse DNS does NOT have forward DNS to match this this.
I'm guessing this is what IRC will be blocking on.

How ever I see that guy IP address is in the static IP range, if he has his own domain name he could log a ticket with the help desk to have his reverse DNS changed to what he wishes.
