RE: wrong domain name from reverse DNS lookup

These are the names that your DNS server returns. If you run
     ping x.x.7.29
you will probably see the same reverse names.

Thanks. I guess that our rDNS infrastructure is not setup completely to get the correct record here. What we are 
thinking that we would do a forward DNS lookup for the domain name. If returned ip address is same as original ip 
address, it would mean that we could trust the domain name, otherwise, it most probably is wrong and outdated
