DNS cache sounds like it caches DNS records after a successfull
DNS query, right ?
The problem at my clients project was, that the DNS server
a) wasn't reachable from time to time because they played
around with a pix firewall in a cat6k
b) these particular OOB IPs and the sun's IPs were not in
So ... I assume a dns *cache* wouldn't have brought any better
functionality. We still would have needed a functionality in
sshd, to turn off reverse lookup entirely ...
The suns have already been secured by firewalls so no real need
for this reverse lookup feature.
