That's what I thought. Yet, AFS keeps finding and using its internal  
IP address.

They can, so I've been NetRestrict'ing away the internal addresses,  
but that doesn't seem to work. As I was saying, I think that's because  
of DNS. Another way I might fix this is to start over and then always  
use an IP address when referring to the local server.

Oh, that probably won't do the trick either. Besides putting the  
external address in NetInfo and the internal one in NetRestrict, I  
probably need to make sure that each server's name always refers to  
its external address, both internally and externally. I do something  
simple, like make up some new names for the AFS servers with which to  
achieve this.
