Unless you are using the latest (Release 16) of the UB code it
is NOT using domain name resolution. Older UB TCP's use the
IEN116 name server, which sun calls in.tnamed. This reads /etc/hosts.
I recompiled it on our machine so that it would call the domain version
of gethostbyname. The UB's then came alive. It's probably just easier
to get UB to send you Rel 16, because you can not make the older PC/NIU
software to work without substantial hacks to the tnamed anyway.
