Hi all;

I have Redhat 6.2 server install.

Would changing localhost to a different name make any difference to
its operation?

ie instead of;

127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain

have 127.0.0.1 gtech gtech.localdomain

and replace localhost in the apache conf with gtech.

So that lynx gtech works. Would this cause me to be unable to use my
ppp connection?

As when I connect and then try to ping the nameserver (230.48.5.1) or
any other ip or name, it just does nothing until I press ctr-c. The it
says that all packets where lost.

I used;

/usr/sbin/pppd /dev/ttyS1 57600 debug user erc connect "/usr/sbin/chat
-v '' AT OK ATDT85534300 CONNECT '\d\c'"

and the output log is;

Stick with this (for the time being).

What have you got in file /etc/resolv.conf ?

you can add other names, but localhost needs to point at 127.0.0.1
ie
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.domain gtech
would be fine.

>Hi m;

some things use "localhost" expecting that it points to 127.0.0.1

Quote:>The way I have hosts and the http.conf set works offline just find ie;

>127.0.0.1 gtech gtech.localdomain

you can point more than one name at 127.0.0.1 and "localhost" should be one
of them.  so i'm saying, put
127.0.0.1 localhost gtech gtech.localdomain
as your line in /etc/hosts

Hi all;

read the NAG (network administrator's guide) at www.linuxdoc.org and you'll
see some sample hosts files.

1. HELP, HELP, HELP - Re: ISP Connection thru cable modem

I am now having the exactly same problem with yours.

another dedicated internet account from my ISP.
For Cable Internet, you can ask the cable guy assign
a static IP address for you.  This makes things easiler.
Cable Internet actually install an Ethernet Card into
your computer and connect to Cable Modem(such as CyberSurfer).
If you don't ask them assign a static IP address for you,
you will need to use the DHCPcd to configure your network.

Now, I have big problem.  I tried to install the Cable Modem
into one of my computer on my LAN.  It works, but just only
for the single computer. I can not route the Internet traffic
to Cable Modem.
Now I install the Ethernet Card + Cable Modem to my WebServer.
And I can not make the traffic go through Cable Modem.

If anyone knows how to set this thing up, please!
I would appreciate your help.
