I'm trying to add names for dialup IPs 
( =  The problem I'm running into is 
some ports on the AnnexXL doesn't get routed properly.  I've narrowed 
down the problem to be with (me) NetBSD.

'netstat -r' show:

dial001.future.n  UGH         1     2171  ed0
dial002.future.n UGHM        1        5  ed0
dial003.future.n  UGH         0       55  ed0
dial004.future.n UGHM        1        4  ed0
dial005.future.n  UGH         0        0  ed0
dial006.future.n  UGH         0        0  ed0
dial007.future.n  UGH         0        0  ed0
dial008.future.n  UGH         0        0  ed0

notice dial002 and dial004.  When ever a user is connected to either 
port, they don't get any packets.  Accessing those ports would give:

 /netbsd: arpresolve: can't allocate llinfo

Should all the dialup IPs be in /etc/gateways?

If I remove all dial* entries from /etc/namedb/ and 
/etc/namedb/ then everything is fine.

I would like those AnnexXL ports to have names...
