[arm-allstar] Disable DNS for Private Nodes

 There are three options for node lookup. The default if not defined is
DNS.  If you strictly want local then set it to local BUT in the very near
future hamvoip users will be able to define private node groups and set IP
addresses for those nodes in the hamvoip registration system. When this
happens and if you want to do it you would need to set the value to =dns
Also if you are using dns or local lookup you will want to run the
filelookup_onoff.sh script to turn off (disable) the file lookup system as
it is not used. To test what method is currently being used for a
particular node use the  rpt lookup <node>  command in the client.

Here is the text for setting -

                                ; There are three choices for the way to
                                ; nodes. Being able to lookup nodes and
                                ; to an IP address and port is a requirement
                                ; for proper operation of Allstar.

                                ; NOTE - when using DNS lookup on all nodes
                                ; a server the filelookup_onoff.sh script
                                ; be used to turn off redundant flat file
                                ; DNS lookup is the default.

                                ; node_lookup_method=dns  (Default)
                                ;   Uses hamvoip DNS lookup

                                ; node_lookup_method=file
                                ;   Uses Allstar flat file lookup
                                ;   Deprecated in hamvoip v1.5

                                ; node_lookup_method=local
                                ;   Uses local fixed routing defined in the
                                ;   [nodes] stanza below
