telnet configuration

Post by Neil Zanell » Fri, 20 Mar 1998 04:00:00



Hi,
Is there a way that I can configure my Linux so that
I can simply type telnet garfield.cs.mun.ca
instead of having to type
telnet 134.153.1.1
each time I want to connect?

Once I know my nameserver, where do I put that entry?

Thanks.

Add an entry to your /etc/hosts file.
