Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Reverse DNS (PTR record) Test?

Before I reinvent the wheel, does anyone have a reverse DNS test for Simon already created? The built-in tests seem to only do forward DNS, not reverse.

Thanks!

Ok, this was a lot easier than I thought, so never mind, rolled my own!

I'm glad you could solve it. Please share your service script, and I'll post it on the Simon Extras page, in case others want this too. Save the script from the Edit Service window and email it to me.

Thank you; I've added the Reverse DNS script to the Simon Extras page.
