They are all behind a firewall, so only folks on local network can see
them, but apparently the real problem is that I turned on NIS to get
remote users to be able to login to the machines, and suddenly almost
no one can lookup host names (not sure why ping works, but wget and
curl have the same problems as ntpdate doing name lookups).

Edited /etc/nsswitch.conf and took "nis" out of the hosts lookup list,
and everyone is working now.

Seems like I recall another post with nis problems yesterday on this
list (which is what made me look :-).
