Reverse Lookups


Mite sound a little strange but..

On some machine if i say
[root@ns1 ~]# w
14:34:08 up 4 min, 2 users, load average: 0.81, 0.64, 0.28
USER TTY FROM LOGIN@ IDLE JCPU PCPU WHAT
root pts/1 <IPADDR> 14:31 0.00s 21.56s 0.00s w
[root@ns1 ~]#



& some times it says..

[root@myhost ~]# w
14:34:08 up 4 min, 2 users, load average: 0.81, 0.64, 0.28
USER TTY FROM LOGIN@ IDLE JCPU PCPU WHAT
root pts/1 test.me.com 19:31 0.00s 21.56s 0.00s w
[root@myhost ~]#


how does it resolve the name in one and not the other..
what i want to know is where is this setting ..
such that it resolves the IP address to the name.
Both the machines use the same DNS server.. so i would not look at /etc/resolv.conf

PS i use FC3


thanks.../
