Here's my hosts file.
0.0.0.0 elan.dlcwest.com elan
The ip for elan.dlcwest.com (my machine) gets updated internally each
time I logon if it is set to 0.0.0.0 here.
Note, elan is just the name I gave to my computer. My ISP has no idea
I'm using its domain with elan. But it does not matter. I used to
have it set the uni's domain instead of my isp's and it worked fine.
Hope this helps. I don't know of anything else that would be different.
