Well, some of you might have read my earlier post about getting a "no
route to host" messgae everytime I did anything. I'd just like to say
thanks to all thos who mailed me about it, I really appreciate it!
The problem was this:
Because I have 2 machines in my house that both run Linux and (now) are
both net.connected, I get confused. When I was trying to telnet on
machine #2 (the one with the problem), i was typing 'telnet access' where
access was an alias in hosts for a real address. Well, this works on
machine #1 because it has access listed in it's hosts file. You see, I
had forgotten to add 'access' to my hosts on machine #2! I had assumed I
has done that already. But, upon closer inspection, I was wrong. =)
Again, thanks to all who responded. The great thing about Linux is that
it doesnt have users, it has followers! It's like having a big family!
I think there should be an alt.cults.linux group formed.
And since some will complain I'm hogging bandwidth, I'd thought I'd ask a
legit question. How do I come up in runlevel 6? Do I have to edit
inittab or more than that? Is this a good thing to do?
