Perhaps you could set it up so that any host can act as a master for any other; once a new host is setup and is talking to one host, it grabs all the other hosts that the master knows about, and continues to poll at regular intervals to find out if there are any new ones.

The original idea was that (depending on the situation) one host be could be designated "master" with all the other permitted hosts listed but set as "manual" and have other hosts connect when ready.

Maybe the thing to do would be to have a job which does an occasional "ping" and if it gets through do a "connect"?

I need to rethink this a bit. I'll come back in the next week with some ideas. Trouble is of course is that the world and his auntie are using the current system so it'll have to understand the current setup as well and do the same thing.

Maybe we ought to call the hosts file something else.
