(There are some exchange points where no > forward is registered, which can be a hassel) The existence of a forward mapping is not a necessary technical precondition for you to insert a reverse mapping which points in the right direction, i.e. at the organization operating the boxes. However I also have trouble seeing why any ISP would willingly decline to register it's boxes in the DNS. I fully agree with PL that introducing EP.NET into this is value- subtraction, in that it will just add unneeded confusion. - Håvard
