Resolve Name

Hello,

I am now having a problem that whenever the clients try to make connections
to my linux box (telnet, ftp, http, etc), my linux box tries to resolve
their ip address back to full name. If my DNS has no information of this ip,
I have to wait for time out to establish the connection. It causes over
1 minute to establish the connection. Besides, traceroute can't work if it
passes some ip that my linux box can't resolve its name.

Can anyone help? I am very frustrating now...

Best Wishes,
Lap Yip
