DNS, CNAME conflicts in logs

I've recently installed a bootstrapped Suse 8.1 system, and I've installed Apache 1.3. The system is behind a hardware ADSL router/switch running a DHCP server

I can access the web server using h ttp://localhost/ , but I cannot access it anymore with h ttp://hostname/ from anywhere on the network. The network seems to work in regard to file-sharing. The firewall is turned off, "telnet hostname 80" fails with connection refused, and "ping hostname" works fine from anywhere on the network.

I get some strange messages post modifying /etc/syslog.conf

--> May 11 17:11:55 hostname mozilla-bin: gethostby*.getanswer: asked for "hostname.gateway in AAAA", got type "A"

this seems to be slightly out of my depth -- it may have to do with a faulty DNS configuration, but I am not familiar enough with this to find out any configuration files or diagnostic information.

Thanks for any help,

Niel Drummond

nameserver of your DNS)

Make sure your gateway is set to the right address. Type 'yast' to configure the network card.
