    I have a cluster that is using the hosts file for name lookup. Forward
    resolve works, i.e. blade-1 resolves to, but the reverse
    resolve does not work. How can I get it to reverse resolve, i.e. resolving to blade-1?

    This is causing me problems with OpenSSH host-based authentication.

    Something like this?

    If not, try other Google hits from:
    openssh TCPWrappers + "hosts.allow""hosts.allow"&btnG=Search

    Or quick finds along similar lines:
