File:  /etc/hosts
Line like: gate gate.mcc.net

Longer story:
	You likely have system configured to use initially "hosts"
	file for IP reversal resolving, and only then to look into
	the DNS.

	In the "hosts" file the first white-space delimittered token is
	the numeric addres, the second is the canonic name, and the
	possible extra tokens are aliases.

	Often people configure things so that their host canonic
	name is not in the first field...

Do I need to spell out the fix ?
