rsync without reverse dns lookup

I set up an script witch connects my rsyncd server. But the IPs for
rsyncd Server and Client have no DNS Name, and so rsync trys to lookup
for a DNS Name for this IPs. This causes a long DNS Timeout!
My question: is there a commandline option to disable this "feature"? Or
can you give me quick "hack around"?

Best regards
