I'm looking at using cfengine to manage and monitor a number of

have probelms with NAT and DNS issues,

Anyone used cfengine where:

- the managed systems are behind NAT-type firewalls
- DNS may be 'odd' (they're Linux systems configured onto Windows
networks, and their DNS names might be someting like or box.local or box.acme.local - conventions at
different customers will differ

Is this likely to cause problems?

How best to avoid probs?

Well, it would probably be a good idea to ask the same question on the network-automation list :).
