Does anyone know why my IRC nickname is displayed [nickname ! ip address] rather than [nickname ! hostname] in the irc channels users list? My dns looks good from a dnsstuff.com report. Though I am having Comcast host my dns via sitecontrol(probably a mistake). Identd is running. Feel free to do nslookups if you must to help.
To me, this looks more like a mask than an actually rDNS lookup from the IRCd. Or, something more. One way to test is to do a /whois on yourself to see what comes back on the IRC server in question. Another would be using /ctcp.
And yes, your rDNS looks proper.
Hope this helps.
