Re: ip host

Carl,

You can use this command to defina an alias name to a specific host. For example:

Router(config)#ip host abc 151.4.0.22

Router(config)#end

Router#ping abc

Type escape sequence to abort.

Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 151.4.0.22, timeout is 2 seconds:

!!!!!

Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/1 ms

HTH,
