Re: hostname of remote computer

I use SSH to connect to a laptop computer that is in an institutional
network. I would like to set an entry for it in my local /etc/hosts,
that I don't have to type the IP address every time I want to connect
is and simply use an alias. As per the man page, /etc/hosts has:
IP_address canonical_hostname [aliases]
To get the canonical_hostname I thought I'd easily get it by typing
"dnshostname" when logged into the remote laptop, but that returns
nothing, and "domainname" returns '(none)'. How should this
canonical_hostname be specified in this case?
Any name you come up with will work, if hard-coded into your
/etc/hosts. Of course, it won't be canonical ...
