yeah, but why should the names be different? esp. when all of the iptables rules, and routing are
by ip, and not name. And what could be more meaningful than staffvpn.x or clientvpn.x or dns.x or
ntp.x, web.y, etc? By keeping the hostnames the same, automated searches against centralized
syslogs never have to be changed, dns never has to be changed. I'm curious what benefit you
would get from sliceing-and-diceing?
