Server Name Alias

I would like to use an alias instead of physical server name in the AF PI point config string.  Right now, for this to work, each client will have to update their host file with the IP address and alias, as well as update their PI Connection Manager to use the alias.  Otherwise they will see the error 'The requested server was not found in the known servers table.'  Is there any way to implement alias on the AF server or in the config string so the client does not have to make both of these updates?  Any recommendations?
