O.S. : RedHat Enterprise Linux 5
The network is as follows:
1. ftp service is configured to accept anonymous logins.
2. The file /etc/resolv.conf contained the following entries...
3. /etc/host.conf contained the following entries
4. /etc/hosts contained the following code
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
Now; according to my logic...I should not
be able to ftp anonymously to server1.example.com because of the incorrect entry in /etc/resolv.conf.
But; still I can ftp anonymously to server1.example.com
