Oracle listener redirect configure help

Hello Folks,

I have a question about the Oracle listener configuration. When a listener is configured, and a DNS name is used to populate the Hostfield, is it possible to put a DNS name in the hostfield, that is not replaced by its resolved IP address before it leaves the server?

For instanceI
 would like the redirect packet to contain the fields: protocol=TCP hostfield: port=15121
When the packet leaves the server and hits its host, I would like the hostfield to still read the dns name, instead of the resolved IP address.

Is this possible?

Also, would it be possible to set up a listener to include an IP address in the hostfield that is not a valid routed IP addy? So, if I wanted the redirect packet to contain an IP address that was not known by the server, could I do this?

Thanks for the valued info guys / gals.
