Re: Networking question

Thanks for the responses!  Unfortunetly, one of the problems that I'm
encountering is that I can't run SquirrelMail from work, so I have to be
home to read and reply to them.  8-(  8-(

Adding the suggested line below (to /etc/hosts) is the thing that
stopped the warning messages.  Of course, that's not the most desirable
solution, since my IP may change.

I use services provided by TZO.com to handle the "changing IP with a
cable modem" problem.  I registered "BruneWorld.com" through them and
have a little Perl script to run that figures out my IP and sends it to
the good people at TZO.  They take care of updating the DSN servers
around the planet.

I *used* to have BruneWorld.tzo.com through TZO.  That didn't give me
the problems that I'm having now.

I think I have another problem.  I'll have to post the details later,
but basically ... after I rebuilt the machine, it will no longer let me
send email out of it to the Internet or even from one user to another. 
I get "no route to host" messages in /var/log/maillog.

Thanks again,
