Local Hosts file for PC/TCP *SOLVED!*

I solved my problem with the gethostbyname error. I created a hosts
file and had pc/tcp point to it. I was able to ping myself, and
other functions, but I still got the error from CU-SeeMe.

The help document says that the syntax for the hosts file should be:
<ip-address> <hostname>

For PC/TCP is should be:
<ip-address> <hostname> <alias>

That was all it took!! I guess it was a case of not RTFM!! I hope
this helps someone. Would it be possible to put this into a FAQ or
the help file?
