[LDM #RVC-520134]: Reverse DNS Lookup Oddity



Robert,

Please let us know what your system administrators think.

Probably OK, then.

If named(8) isn't running on the local system, then you'll need other name 
servers specified in "/etc/resolv.conf".

I suspect that if you restart the recognized downstream system, then it will 
have the same problem.

Please do.
