NIS? Na... And IMO it's not the client who checks /etc/hosts, but the
systemcaal gethostbyname().... Maybe you're hostname-resolving system
is not properly set up. Or maybe there's a special bind-configuration
in Sun systems that rc5 clients don't like....
Fact is that most systems have no problems with network (apart from
the usual errors) but the great majority of the Sun systems seem to
have problems with network. You tried filling in an IP-adres instead
of rc5proxy.d.net?
