We're looking for a way to include IP address / Node Name information in a Hosts File style in order to show node names more quickly (i.e. before a successful connection has been made to the node).

There is a hosts file.  /etc/hosts  but it says not to edit it as it is dynamically created.

It says to use /etc/hosts.user, however, when we create that file it doesn't seem to be included.

We have 15 or so active nodes here, and growing, which include at least a couple of mobile nodes.  It would be nice to allow the nodes to recognize known nodes before connecting and passing all of the info needed to display the names.
