How to disable reverse name lookup?

Post by Haroon Rafiq » Tue, 15 Aug 1995 04:00:00

Maybe I haven't looked hard enough, but the FAQ doesn't answer
this question. Again I probably wasn't looking in the right

How do I disable reverse name lookup to make the server run
faster? I am running NCSA httpd 1.4.2 on a Sun Sparc running SunOS

On an aside, I had a query about error messages in the log files
for the NCSA httpd server. I keep seeing the error "Killing CGI
process xxx"! Can somebody educate me on what it means?

1. telnetd: how to disable reverse name lookup?

When DNS isn't working it takes for damn ever for the telnetd to present the
login prompt, because the telnetd deamon tries to reverse lookup the IP from
my PC that I'm connecting in from. This is damn annoying.

Can the the reverse lookup be turned off somehow? If so, how?

Thanks, Zoran.
