I can quite believe that our Reverse DNS lookup is broken, but there is no delay for other workstations (using XP Pro SP1 and NT2000 SP4) and I thought that the CVSNT server applet option to turn off reverse DNS lookup did just that. I would gladly get the Reverse DNS lookup fixed if I knew how. I have spent the best part of a day trying to find out how to do this... hence my bothering the list. So, 2 questions: 1) Does disabling reverse DNS lookup eliminate a reverse DNS lookup problem? 2) If it does, what else could be going wrong? Greg Smith
