I am new to Linux and I am running RedHat 7.3/Server. I own my own
domain name. I was wanting to reflect that domain name on logins ( i.e
changed the /ext/sysconfig/network file to read HOSTNAME= "mydomain.net".
My hosts file now reads
The change at telnet login was fine. I get the host name I want, but my
ftp login now takes an extremely long time to connect. When I change the
HOSTNAME back to the default localhost.localdomain in the network file the
ftp connection was back to normal. How can I make this change work like it
is supposed to? How will this affect POP3 and SMTP domains as I plan to run
my own mail server in the near future?
Thanks in advance :)
