[DISREGARD POST] ProFTPD Unable to detirmine IP address of ...


Hey folks, Im having a little bit of troubles here. Im busy installing ProFTPD and im not that much into messing with hostnames and stuff yet. I just installed it from RPM ( Redhat 9 RPM, Redhat 9 as OS ) and when try to doing anything it just gives me this one error :

[root@s1106 etc]# proftpd - error: unable to determine IP address of ''

Now I have read something about /etc/hosts so I will also include that here:

# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail. s1106 localhost.localdomain localhost

I hope any of you can help me out, running proftpd-1.2.8-4p from RPM.

Hope to hear from ya all soon.
