    I have a cluster that is using the hosts file for name lookup. Forward
    resolve works, i.e. blade-1 resolves to 192.168.70.131, but the reverse
    resolve does not work. How can I get it to reverse resolve, i.e.
    192.168.70.131 resolving to blade-1?


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


    Thanks,

    Chris

    Something like this?

    http://www.hpc.sfu.ca/bugaboo/access-ctrl.html

    If not, try other Google hits from:
    openssh TCPWrappers + "hosts.allow"
    http://www.google.com/search?num=50...enssh+TCPWrappers+++"hosts.allow"&btnG=Search

    Or quick finds along similar lines:
