    Default Unknown Host ?

    Hello there

    I am installing the ZCS on FC 4 and even if I have all the networking files well setup and the DNS/smtp ports open ? the only thing is the reverse dns lookup ?

    can anybody give me a hint ?

    You don't have the networking files set up correctly if the system can't determine it's own hostname.

    Default hostname

    I type hostname and it works !?

    should I set up my MX record to have the hostname in it instead of just the domain ?

    Thanks Marcman

    yeah, but is the value returned by hostname in /etc/hosts?

    Are the IPs on your interfaces in /etc/hosts?

    Is one of your IPs connected to the hostname returned by the hostname command?

    Default No

    no
    I removed my domain line with the lp device to replace it with the localdomain.localhost line for mysql to work.

    Should I enter my hostname in there as well ? I have my mail server behind a firewall that does port forwarding so I guess I should put my internal address and my real hostname and .... ?

    Thanks a lot for the help

    I can't tell you what values are right for your host.

    I can tell you this:

    The string that is returned by the hostname command needs to appear in your /etc/hosts file, and it needs to be on a line that starts with an IP address that appears when you run ifconfig -a
