Do "man sshd" and search for "reverse"...  I believe that's the setting
which controls disabling it on SSH.  For FTP it would be a similar process,
though it would depend on the FTP server what the exact location/setting
would be to change.  HTTP doesn't usually do it, because reverse lookups
take very long, however it is possible to set it up that way...  Look in
the apache docs for "reverse".

Yep, usually reverse lookups will time out after a minute...
