How this relates to the discussion, I have no clue, but I am willing to go along
in the hopes this will actually lead somewhere useful. I am but a Mechanical
Engineer, so I don't know a great deal about the inner-workings of the Internet.
But, I will tell you all I know about IN-ADDR.ARPA.|
From what I understand, the
Internet uses this domain to support gateway location and Internet address to host
mapping. The purpose of IN-ADDR.ARPA is to provide a method that is guaranteed
to perform host address to host name mapping. Also, it makes it easier for queries
to locate all gateways on a particular network in the Internet.
Now, please tell
me how in Hades this was germane to our discussion.
