Re: Quick networking question

Subject: Re: Quick networking question

As far as I know, any host on the network can define another host in its hosts table using any hostname it likes. It acts as sort of a local "DNS" on that host.

And there is nothing forcing you to give a hostname when you hook up to the LAN - at least not when you use a fixed IP address, and I think also not with DHCP.

So (if I'm correct) it doesn't even necessarily make sense to ask for "the name all hosts call a particular machine".

Why do you need it?

Best regards,
