That doesn't matter.  Without a working DNS server, Asterisk will fall over -- 
even if all your configuration files are using IP addresses and you have all 
your own machines in /etc/hosts .

Probably the easiest thing to do is just install bind9 on your Asterisk box  
(and make sure to put
in its resolv.conf).  BIND is pretty lightweight as servers go, so should not 
impact badly on performance, especially if it's the only machine using it.


Answers come *after* questions.
