Surely, there are 2 ways of doing it. Hold the thread
at each end and 
ask the respective ISPs to clean up the routing.

I have approached BSNL a number of times not only for
this specific 
instance but for many such routing mistakes in the
past too. Now remains 
the question of approaching VSNL for website end (as
DPS is the 
customer). Is there someone from DPS who can take up
the issue with 
VSNL. He / she can be advised accordingly by the
advisors / admins.

Assuming this probing is based on the need of
providing e-mail services 
hosted on DPS server for the ilug-cal.info domain.

If it is so, then yes, we can start a new thread to
discuss the issues / 
implications and cost and benefit analysis related to
self hosted email 
services and as part of it we also discuss and solve
this issue 
(actually getting the reverse domain mapping in place
is too simple an 
issue), the larger issue is how a full fledged email
service will affect 
the overall performance of the resources generously
provided by JPM for 
a noble cause. Whenever, we plan a new service on the
same resource we 
need to first do a little feasibility and benefit
analysis / planning 
about it. What do you say ? Shall we start a thread on
the subject ?
