GNU/Linux Network Configuration Local DNS resolution


Example

File: /etc/hosts contains a list of hosts that are to be resolved locally(not by DNS)

Sample contents of the file:

127.0.0.1         your-node-name.your-domain.com  localhost.localdomain  localhost 
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX   node-name

The file format for the hosts file is specified by RFC 952
