Dear BSD enthusiast, Greetings. I am a newcomer to the BSD/Unix world. On Wednesday, a message was posted on FreeBSD-Announce by Mr. Nik Clayton announcing the creation of a wiki site for the upcoming BSD convention. He gave the address as follows: "http://bsdcon.kwiki.org/". In attempting to contact the site, I assumed that the omission of "www" from the address was a typographical error. So I pointed my web browser at " http://www.bsdcon.kwiki.org". The page that was delivered was a site for posting shareware written in ruby language, and did not seem to resemble the site described by Mr. Clayton. I re-entered the address exactly as spelled in the announcement, without "www", and received the correct page. My question is this: "What is the difference between what I am telling the DNS server and outgoing gateway router to do when I enter into my browser address box 'http://www.bsdcon.kwiki.org' and when I enter into my browser address box 'http://bsdcon.kwiki.org'?" My place of employment is a large agency with thousands of client machines. Most of the clients use Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional operating system. Most of the servers use either Novell operating system, or I.B.M. Domino operating system. Many thanks for your assistance. Yours truly, Lee Shackelford
