Hi,

I realise that Applets automatically perform reverse DNS lookup when they receive packets for security reasons and I know that I can set trusted proxies. However I need to completely disable reverse DNS lookups being performed for performance reasons (as they will always fail on the system they are deployed upon and cause a delay as each lookup times out).

Is the only way of doing this by subclassing the security manager and stopping it from doing the lookup?

Thanks for any help you can offer

Lloyd
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
