    Forward allows you to resolve host names to IP addresses and reverse allows you to do the opposite (reverse) and resolve ip addresses to host names.

    Forward lookup is pretty straight-forward (no pun intended), but reverse lookup is a more involved process. Here is more information on it: http://technet2.microsoft.com/window....mspx?mfr=true

    Please, what ever you do, always keep reverse lookup zones for your AD environments. It is incredibly useful for troubleshooting.
