I try to do a reverse DNS lookup (IP-Address -> Hostname) on an AIX 4.3.3 system. The DNS itself is running under Win2k. Unfortunately the IP address cannot be resolved. Is there a probelm between AIX 4.3.3 and Win2k on DNS issues, since other systems do the reverse lookup smoothly.

Reverse DNS lookup ?
how are you trying to do the lookup? host 188.8.131.52? or nslookup 184.108.40.206?
if the first, it is probably because of an /etc/netsvc.conf file specifying that lookups go to local first.
