| None of the hostnames in the configs work.

I can imagine what could be wrong.
you probably have Socket6 (a version more recent than 0.10)
perl -MSocket6 -e 'print "yep\n"'
there is an incompatibility btwn argus 3.2.1 and newer
versions of Socket6.
- upgrade argus
- remove Socket6
- delete the Socket6 line in argus's 'misc.pl'
