Hi, I am in the process of running through the Java tutorial on creating a KnockKnock Client and KnockKnock Server.
Part of the tutorial asks me to modify the host name to a valid home name from my network.
How do I find a valid name for my host network?
The following is the part that covers this in the tutorial.
"If you forget to change the host name in the source code for the KnockKnockClient program, you will see the following error message:
Don't know about host: taranis
To fix this, modify the KnockKnockClient program and provide a valid host name for your network. Recompile the client program and try again."
Thanks in advance
Thank you for pointing out the basics of the basic, this is the first assignment I have attempted on networking. I will now google the basics of networking.
That's the spirit!
You might want to read up about TCP/IP. Dry material, but very helpful knowledge if you want to understand what is going on. Also helps outside of code when you need to deal with setting up network connections, configuring routers, setting up port forwarding, proxy servers, etc. etc.
