where in DNS? what pull down, property tab, etc...?

sorry that I'm so dense, but in one email you
say "I actually asked IBM if the FTP was doing a lookup on the client IP
address
or name and the answer was a definitive "no".", now you say
"The IBM AS/400 FTP server does a reverse lookup on its own domain name".
What gives? no wonder I'm confused. I do appreciate your (and other's) help,
but I'm not making any progress on this...   :-(
