Those servers seem to check if your IP can be reverse-resolved to an
internet domain name. If you do have external IP (e.g. not masqueraded
by your ISP) then you should have your IP to be written in DNS
reverse-lookup tables, ask your ISP to do so or do it yourself if DNS
in on your machine. This could help.
