reverse lookup on local IP (

Does anyone know whether I should be able to nslookup my local IP?

I have a small network set up as 10.x.x.x, and dial in to an ISP.
My caching nameserver is on
If I try (from the machine) to nslookup, I get:

-> Server:  localhost
-> Address:

-> *** localhost can't find Non-existent host/domain

Shouldn't I be able to resolve to a name?

Here's /etc/resolv.conf:
order hosts,bind
multi on

Here's /etc/hosts:       localhost     mydnshost     otherhost

Thanks for your help.
