This sounds like the classic DNS problem. Make sure that you have host/ip
entries in /etc/hosts. An example /etc/hosts file might look like this:               localhost localhost.localdomain		wakko.yourdomainname.com wakko		yakko.yourdomainname.com yakko		dot.yourdomainname.com dot

Or if you don't have a domain, the following will work:               localhost localhost.localdomain		wakko		yakko		dot

Then all you need to do is "telnet wakko"

I have no idea.


PS - Wakko, Yakko, and Dot are characters from the Animaniacs cartoon
television show for those people who are wondering.
