[SOLVED?] write_socket_data bug

There seems to be relatively little information on DNS administration
online. "Buy the book" is the most common advice. But Ask Mr DNS,
is a good place to start for online resources, and for the record, we
have done reasonably well without books where I work.  /  Otto

This sounds like exactly the solution to the problems I've been having -
could someone describe the process of adding reverse DNS in simple terms
for novices like me?

Many thanks - the list has been quite helpful and I appreciate the
gathered wisdom of all you subscribers.

I can confirm that adding reverse address lookup seems to solve the
problem. Since we added reverse DNS about a week ago, there has not been
a single write_socket_data error message in the samba logs. Many thanks
for this useful tip.
