    I guess GTO001 is your hostname?
    What's in /etc/hosts?

    Please start a new thread, because otherwise this one will become confusing if we deal with two different problems of two different users here.

    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.

    Please make it look like this:
    Code:
    # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
    # that require network functionality will fail.
    127.0.0.1               localhost.localdomain localhost
    192.168.0.100        GTO001
    
    ::1	localhost.localdomain	localhost
    where 192.168.0.100 must be replaced with your server's IP address.
