How much of the IP addess do I have to specify? I would guess the first xxx.xx of the addresses machines I wish to connect from.
Please excuse my for not giving the whole of the content of the two files, I think it would be considered a security risk for me to do so.
hosts contains only the local host and the above mentioned local IP that the web server is using. Then some standard lines for IPv6.
ifconfig contains two groups on info. My eth0 details and the lo local loopback for 127.0.0.1.
If you could be specific about what information you require from these files I may be able to help more, but I cannot give out any IP info for the machines or network. Sorry to be disobliging!
