Dashboard Problem with URL of VNC Console

I run openstack-dashboard in a VM based on Ubuntu 12.04 separate from the rest of the OpenStack components. It was very easy to install and get working except for this one problem.

When attempting to attach to the VNC console of some VM instance, the URL is formed with the hostname of the OS controller. So I get a URL that looks like this:

http://osccontrol:6080/ ...

If I manually replace the string with the IP address of the control system, it then works, like this: ...

What is the best way to fix this? Can dashboard be configured to form the URL with the IP address or is there a way to associate a DNS name with the system known as oscontrol?

OpenStack release is Icehouse.
