Problem description

Reverse DNS lookup failing for .0 addresses when they should not. The reverse DNS generation was faulty because it always used a netmask. This causes a .0 mask to always be equal to the network address. Modified the code to get the real netmask and use it only for the compare.
Changed line in posleases2ldap service script to accurately show whether the service is running.
