[Rpcemu] RPCEmu 0.9.0 — Networking issues

I had set these values—host name to 'HPLaptop' (without the quotes) and domain to 'domain' (ditto) so I wonder if it does make a difference what values are given; what did you use?

Also, in my case the laptop is connected via wi-fi not Ethernet. Don't know whether that matters.

Finally, I found that I could enter (for example) www.marutan.net<http://www.marutan.net> into the hosts file on RISC OS; this let "ping www.marutan.net<http://www.marutan.net>" work correctly but I couldn't use Netsurf to display the site (it hung, causing RO to hang as well).

I installed Ubuntu 18.04 and have got networking working using the
current instructions on the site.

However there is one setting you could have missed that can cause the
error you're seeing, in the RISC OS Internet configuration Name Server
configuration window.


Make sure you have a value in "Host name" and "Local domain", they can
be anything you like, and reboot. If not set to something then
namelookups fail in the manner you describe even if the "Primary name
server" value is set correctly.
