The netsvc.conf file should change both forward and reverse!  The NSORDER
environmental variable will override the netsvc.conf file.  Try for example:
NSORDER=local,bind host <IP Address>
then try
NSORDER=bind,local host <Same IP Address>

If that shows the resolution properly, then netsvc.conf should work also.
