No... if you give it a hostname in the config files, it always looks
it up to find the IP. That configuration controls whether or not it
i.e. If it sees an IP address in a RADIUS packet, the default is to
print it as an IP address. If you turn hostname lookups on, it will try
to look up that IP to find a host name.
