Further information:

nslookup localhost:

        Server: orion.aye.net          
        Address: 206.185.8.9            [My ISP's primary DNS server]

        +++ orion.aye.net cannot find localhost: Non-existant host/domain

Any nslookup (ris2) gets routed to orion.aye.net instead of being resolved
by /etc/hosts.  A ping ris2 (or 10.1.1.2) hangs.  A ping from ris2 to ris
(actually 10.1.1.1) reports "request timed out". Pings to localhost,
ayenet or iglou work as usual.

/etc/hosts:

        10.1.1.1        ris.UniXpress.com       ris
        10.1.1.2        ris2    ris2.UniXpress.com
        10.1.1.3        risdos3 risdos3.UniXpress.com
        127.0.0.1       localhost       localhost.UniXpress.com
        192.107.41.4    iglou   gator.fe0-3.lou.iglou.com
        192.107.41.3    iglou2  iglou1.iglou.com
        206.185.8.9     ayenet  cassiopia.aye.net
        206.185.8.8     ayenet2 orion.aye.net

/etc/resolv.conf:

        domain UniXpress.com
        nameserver 206.185.8.9
        nameserver 206.185.8.8
        hostresorder local bind

/usr/internet/etc/sco_ip/routes:

        net default 206.195.8.1                 [My ISP's router]

I thought the hostresorder above indicates usage of /etc/hosts and then
DNS but apparently in looking up localhost, it is going to the primary DNS
server and cannot find it.

Any ideas as to what/why this is happening?

Thank you,
Lucky

1. FastTrack Admin: No route to host

In trying to invoke the Netscape FastTrack Server Admin tools, I receive
the following error dialog:

        A network error occurred
        unable to connect to server (TCP Error: no route to host)
        The server may be down or unreachable.

        Try connecting again later.

I was trying to use the Admin tool (ns-admin) to change the default
docuemnts directory to the one where all my HTML stuff is stashed.

My local machine has an absolute IP address assigned by my ISP and, before
doing a reinstall (fresh) over the weekend, I could reach my internal home
page by using:

        http://<absolute_IP_address>/index.html

When I try that, I receive the error:

        Netscape is unable to find the file or directory named
        http://<absolute_IP_address>/index.html

        Check the name and try again.

I know I manually edited one of the FastTrack config files before to
change this but now I cannot seem to locate the right one.  Anybody out
there know which one?

Thank you,
Lucky
