I'll never understand why CA/400 developers just don't rely on DNS to
resolve IP addresses. Every other IP based program I run will resolve an IP
address via DNS. CA/400 always relies on a HOSTS file on the PC. If the
system name changes or we add another system we have to touch the HOSTS
files on ALL of our PC's before CA/400 will work....
