Inconsistent Hostname and IP Address

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host's hostname is not consistent with DNS information.

Description :

The name of this machine either does not resolve or resolves to a
different IP address.

This may come from a badly configured reverse DNS or from a host file
in use on the Nessus scanning host.

As a result, URLs in plugin output may not be directly usable in a web
browser and some web tests may be incomplete.

Solution :

Fix the reverse DNS or host file.

Risk factor :

None
