Do you have ntpd installed? What does pgrep ntpd return?

Seriously, while it's understandable for people to ask questions like this, this really isn't the venue.

comment Using Free/Open BSD + pf as a DDoS filter
FreeBSD is likely to scale quite a bit better, since it's networking is quite a bit less locky. PF will still run single threaded though, so it may not scale to 1Gb/s

comment nslookup Failure
From his description, it doesn't sound like nslookup goes through nss, since the domain is in /etc/hosts, so should be found by it, if it goes though nss, rather than straight to DNS. That said, I'd agree with using dig rather than nslookup.

It appears this is correct. It seems to read /etc/mailname, and then chop off everything up to the first dot to get the domain for users mail addresses.
