Hi Eric.

Don't think so, I fixed the reverse DNS issue earlier:
root at 202-150-101-225:/usr/local/Dialect/PaymentClient/config# nslookup
Address:    name = 202-150-101-225.networkstuff.net.nz.

root at 202-150-101-225:/usr/local/Dialect/PaymentClient/config# 

This machine runs its own DNS server.

Could you please provide a sample of this rule?
