But, it _is_ running named.  ???


[bab1 npisrv1 bab1]$ hostname -i
192.168.3.5 
[bab1 npisrv1 bab1]$ ps -A | grep named
 2484 ?        00:00:00 named
[bab1 npisrv1 bab1]$ nslookup
*** Can't find server name for address 192.168.3.5: Server failed
*** Default servers are not available
[bab1 npisrv1 bab1]$

To machines outside the switch, it is viewed as 216.230.78.179.
To itself and other machines behind the switch, it is viewed
as 192.168.3.5.
