Hi!The short answer is that you only have a single IP address assigned, and as you are not authoritative for DNS records for pukruppa.net, you are unable to 'subdivide' or use any more IP addresses, which would be required to add additional hostnames.
This question is inspired by a recent mail on this list.
My ISP was so nice to give me a domain name (pukruppa.net) and assign it statically to an IP (18.104.22.168). [So now everybody in the world can telnet pukruppa.net and crack my private machine :-) ]
From reading manuals one should think, that now I could give mymachines names like one.pukruppa.net, two.pukruppa.net, etc... and all these would be reachable via internet - but they aren't. The only one that can be accessed is pukruppa.net .
How comes this?
type: dig pukruppa.net at your freebsd prompt to see what I mean, note the AUTHORITY section...
