However most of the time I will not be connected to the broadband router in this way but will be standalone so when I broke my network connection and rebooted I got???? How did you break the connection?
rtls0: link downWhat does ifconfig -a and svcs -a |grep network/physical show?
failed to configure DHCP
hostname set to myhostname
which I thought reasonable enough - however just before the JDS desktop environment starts I get a message
myhostname not recognised gnome may not continue to work properly you may
want to edit your /etc/hosts file <continue> or <try again>
so I <continue> and login then try to do
telnet myhostname ==> fails as unrecognised
telnet 127.0.0.1 ==> works
