Date: Thu Mar 07 1991 - 16:19:10 CST

  Many thanks to *many* people for concice and prompt replies to my problem.
I'm enclosing one reply for a summary, everyone said pretty much the same
thing. Thanks again!

It appears that there are problems with the setup of the
"" domain. The "" domain is used
to answer questions of the form: Given the IP address W.X.Y.Z,
what is the hostname corresponding to the given address?
"gethostbyaddr(3)" uses this sort of lookup.

Apparently there are no entries in the "" domain
for your IP addresses, IP: and IP: There
should be a couple PTR type records: IN PTR IN PTR
