Are you using a proxy for Netscape? In that case, name-resolution
for host-names in Netscape is not done by Netscape itself but by the
proxy. In my MacOS-X-Server setup, I have the blue box (MacOS
emulation running as a process within MOSXS) set up with an IP
address not known to the outside world, and without a connection to
DNS. Both IE and NS can access hosts by host-name via proxy or
directly using IP addresses, but not directly using host-names.
