now my problem is when i am trying with my ip(ie host 192.168.1.200)
it showing host 126.96.36.199.in -addr.arpa not found:2(SERVFAIL)
what's the mistake with me
No mistake with you. This is the default behaviour of 'host'

performs a reverse DNS. Since you dont have a reverse DNS entry
for the ip provided, the lookup fails.
