[McIDAS #VAH-623608]: Missing ADDE radar

Hi Russ,

Sorry for the silence.  I was off and about this afternoon and not
reading email...

Yup, things are OK here.

Name service only comes into play in ADDE when defining client
routing table entries (i.e., 'DATALOC ADD' or 'DATALOC HOST').
When either of these is run, the IP address of the indicated server(s)
is(are) ascertained by a 'gethostbyname' call for nameservice, and
the result(s) is(are) cached in the file pointed to by the user's

This behavior is the reason that users should run 'DATALOC HOST' at
the beginning of their McIDAS-X sessions -- 'DATALOC HOST' will insure
that any machines for which DNS has changed will be accessible by their
new IP.  I added automatic running of 'DATALOC HOST' to the startup

I agree.
