As in another post (was it Marty?), I wouldn't change anything here although I 
normally use *LOCAL for priority.

However, since you use *REMOTE, you might need to make certain that any entry 
in the DNS at '' for your AS/400 specifies 
"ISD43750.INTERBORO.K12.PA.US" as the primary host name (but that doesn't seem 
like it'd be sensible).

I don't know what the deal is with this whole mess. It's almost as if MGTC 
opens the host database for sequential access and reads until it finds a match 
on primary host name (not checking the alias portion of the returned structure) 
rather than simply requesting address by name.

But it's guesswork. All I know for certain is that this fix has worked for me.
