Interpret DNS Audit results

Consider the following when interpreting DNS Audit results:

  • The first column of the user interface provides the scanned IP address.
  • The Reverse Resolve column provides the DNS name, if the IP address resolves using reverse DNS.
  • The Reverse Resolve column contains red text <no reverse DNS response> if a response is not received.
  • The Forward Resolve column contains nothing if reverse resolution fails (forward resolution is not attempted).
  • The Forward Resolve column contains <did not resolve> if there was a failure of the forward resolution attempt.
  • The Forward Resolve column contains a red IP address if the forward resolution to an IP address is different than the originally scanned IP address.
