That's what I thought of, but I think he has a people rather than
technical problem here ..

It would be trivial to set up an single domain on DNS servers for both
LANs, but from what he's said about not being able to change the
network I don't think that would happen. i.e. anything outside
bugzilla itself is outside his control.

Best advice could well be to leave the nasty hack in place and shout
out respective network admins until they provide an address that works
on both networks, or set up suitable DNS.. which if he can do it
successfully would make a nice scenario to discuss in his next job
interview when he finds somewhere with network managers who care about
business needs ;)
