Network clients may be unable to connect to secure Web sites that verify that the client Internet Protocol (IP) address belongs to a domain name registered in North America. If you attempt to download 128-bit encryption, you may receive a message stating that your IP address cannot be resolved to a domain name registered in North America.
Clients experience no other problems browsing the Internet. Your Domain Naming System (DNS) server has a reverse lookup zone that is correctly configured.
This behavior can occur when your DNS server is not registered with Internic to provide reverse lookup resolution for the network address of a segment of your network. When the DNS server has not registered a segment's network address with Internic, reverse lookup will not succeed for clients that have an IP address belonging to that network segment; the IP address cannot be resolved to a domain name.
To resolve this behavior, use reverse lookup resolution for the network segment by registering the network address of the segment with Internic on your DNS server.
