solaris unknown host or invalid literal address

Hi,

actually it's 2 related problems, so I'm offering 200 points to whoever helps me solve these problems.
First one , when I type in hostname it gives me "unknown"
I've checked the /etc/hosts, nodename, /etc/inet/ti* hosts files and they are the same name. Don't know why it gives me "unknown"

Next problem... when i do a ftp, for exmaple:
ftp ftp.isc.org, it gives me
ftp.isc.org: unknown host or invalid literal address"

I belive this is related to the one above.
Thanks
Chen.

I think the problems are related and both due to improper name resolution.  It's unclear how you want it to work and what resources are available on your network.
Perhaps this will get you started:

Thanks jhance ,

The article solved both my problems! It was the one on modifying /etc/rcS.d/S30network.sh

You've earned your 200 points. Thanks for the quick reply also.

regards,
Chen
