Is there a way to prevent rsyncd from doing reverse IP lookups on
connecting clients? I didn't find any config option for this.

There are several situations where these lookups will always fail and
uselessly slow down the connection. One such situation is when using
rsync on a small home network to do backups to a NAS.

Is there a solution to this, without telling people to set up a local
DNS server or use a different home router (which is generally also the
DNS server)?

Thanks,

MI
