Hi turbot_yu,

No, it can't.

1 IP can have several hosts, but not the other way around

Technically, you can assign several hosts to one IP - only the first entry will be read though.

Technically, you can plug a computers power cable into a block of cheese too :)

But that won't work at all... using several hosts to one IP WILL WORK - for the first host.

What I mean is a pc has several NIC, each with its own ip and in different subnet. but has same hostname, when other pc want to point to this pc in different subnet, will the hostname work?

How is the host configuration file work?
