    Try google for reverse dns if you want to know how to set something like that up.

    maybe you made a mistake reverse dns is something else

    @slick99
    if you saw that on irc you should probably google for irc bouncer or irc vhost

    It is a reverse DNS.

    Actually, I meant what I said, optimus. A reverse DNS lookup is the process of fetching any kind of canonical hostname from a DNS server if all you presently have is an IP address.

    well i knew you did, i just wanted to be polite

    computers talk in ip addresses, not human readable names. so they talk "208.101.40.56" instead "filesharingtalk.com". because it's hard to remember dns lookup is used to turn filesharingtalk.com into numbers. when numbers need to be turned back to name, guess what's used - reverse dns lookup. all this happens between you and your hosts dns server and dns server up the line.

    so you see, it absolutely has nothing to do with spoofing hostnames on irc.

    but if you untick the resolve ips in utorrent, it shows the true ip rather than spoof hostname

    How did irc come up? I thought he was asking about a bittorrent client.
