4. In the IP address text box, type the IP address of the server's local network adapter.

5. Leave the Name box empty, click Create Associated PTR Record, and then click Add Host.

6. When you receive the "(same as parent folder) is not a valid host name. Are you sure you want to add this record?" message, click Yes.
