Should I be getting a reverse DNS on my Orcon connection ??
When running some online tests, I get messages such as "Your IP has no reverse DNS"

Would this potentially affect some online services such gaming systems ? (CoH in particular)

I wouldn't worry unless you're running a mailserver on the IP.

I fix stuff!
