any chance your machines don't have reverse DNS? Most of my
machines are med.usf.edu machines but, because I have no control over the
DNS for my department and the person who does doesn't have a clue about
getting reverse address resolution to work, all of those machines show
up in the list with their ip address instead of the 2nd level domain.
