I think so to, so add the reverse entries to your DNS, it is
easier than trying to defang Openssh, qmail, ftpd, etc

You'll need a 168.192.in-addr.arpa zone by the looks of it.

Most apps just do the reverse lookup, so if you don't know some
entries just write a script to create dummy entries for all your
network addresses, and then over write the one's you do know.
