Is it possible to set an ipv6 PTR record

I can see how that would work. I have a pointer in a number of places now for the ipv6, so I will try this.

The current ptr is pointing to my provider’s dns, even though I’m sure my iov6 is unique to my server interface. I’m probably wrong though !

That means how other ip6 addresses are resolved, for example 'static' (NXDOMAIN for others) or transparent (look upstream).  This is what that looks like:
