We had a problem with our GroupWise client looking for ngwnameserver1 at startup. Here's how we solved it.

If you have BorderManager, an easy way to get around this is to add a line to the SYS:ETC\HOSTS file on the BM server that includes the IP address of a nearby POA and the name ngwnameserver1

This way, the name actually resolves and GroupWise works without incident.
