Hello all,
I'm having a problem that is somewhat addressed in the FAQ, but the
author did not go into depth on how to fix it.  I need to create and

    mean (or something close to that)?

    hostname "console" (what came after gethostbyname:) as the master
    conserver host.  You'll need to either reconfigure with the

    add an alias of "console".  In most cases, adding an alias is my

I would like to know how and where to make this alias.

Thanks in advance!
