Error when putting hostname at the router.

Hi Experts,

When i put in hostname below, i got the error message below. Is there any limitation of characters on hostname at cisco devices?

% Hostname "SFRRE-DR00330044 " is not a legal LAT node name, Using "CISCO_F3C01B"

Thanks,

Re: Error when putting hostname at the router.

Local Area Transport (LAT) protocol is the protocol used most often to connect terminals to DEC hosts.

The LAT protocol is similar to TCP/IP's Telnet protocol in that it allows an user at one site to establish a connection to a host at another site, then passes the keystrokes from one system to the other. A user can establish a LAT connection through the terminal server to a DEC host, simply by entering the host name.

It sounds like the IOS you are running, has terminal services features.

To read more about LAT, see:

In short, I wouldn't worry about it :) Ignore the message.
