[Snort-users] Name resolution

Hi,

This is going to be a very basic question. I do see (on daily basis) attempts
to connect to the sunrpc services (port 111). When I try to resolve the IP
address, I always get,

*** myhost.mydom.com can't find sys.no.edu: Non-existent host/domain 

How are these hackers conducting the hacks? They should get some response back
from my machine. If their host/domain does not exist, then where are the
replies from my system going?

Thanks for any info.
