Host Files?

Unanswered Question
Jul 10th, 2009

Hi All,

I'm confused. I have a simple demo network in which I plug into my 3560 which in turn is connected to various other remote devices (all configured and working okay). The IP address of MGMT interface on a particular device is - I can telnet to this device which has a hostname test. I want to be able to telnet to "test" but I have no DNS or host file configured. Any help to get me started with config of a host file on the router "test".

Thanks All.

I have this problem too.

2 options:

ip host something

something can be everything, does not has to be necessary test

1)connect to name is only possible on the device you configured the ip host command

second possibility

edit hosts file with a text editor test

location: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\

From the device you want to use as base to connect to other devices using their hostnames, try this command.



ip host TEST

To test;

ping TEST

telnet TEST
