Host names unmatched when using telnet or rlogin to local hosts

Host names unmatched when using telnet or rlogin to local hosts

Post by Hiu Cheu » Sat, 06 Nov 1993 01:55:42



hi all,

we have the following problem here:
first of all, we runs 4.2BSD here on our server "scus1" and
we have a VAX in the next building "scsud".
However, whenever i use telnet or rlogin to scsud, and do a
finger on myself, i always get "scsu1" instead of the correct
one -- scus1.

btw, we're running yp and using csusys.ctstateu.edu as bind server.
could there be a problem over there???
or most likely local problem???

just to kill a couple possibilities of local problems:
i checked /etc/hosts and made sure the spelling is "scus1" -- the
correct one...

the one the VAX, nothing on the incorrect one -- scsu1 -- was found.

any info would be appreciated.

Orphy! :-)

ps.  will that affect the talk too???

 
 
 

1. Can't ping the host name or host IP address from host.

Hello there,
I have the unusual problem of not being able to ping the machines host name
or host IP address from the host.
I've checkout the network settings and I can't seem to find any problems.  I
am able to ping & telnet to the machine
from the network.  Seems quite strange.

Any help would be really appreciated.

thanks,

Owen.
