I have several hostnames and addresses in /etc/hosts. I can telnet and
ping to these hostnames no problem. However, the 'host' command does
not recognize the hostnames. I am not connected to a dns at this point,
nor am I running named (I think).
Doesn't the host command basically call gethostbyname()? I wrote a
simple program and gethostbyname() returns the addresses ok.
I've tried switching the "order bind, hosts" line in host.conf, no change.
What's the problem here?
