Bug 46452


GemStone/S 64 Bit

3.3.1, 3.3


hostname resolution on Ubuntu

An Ubuntu default install creates entries in /etc/hosts of localhost <hostname>

Listening in "any interface" or on does not pickup connects to, which results in hostname resolution failures.


As of v3.3.3, GemStone will also listen on whatever IP4 address that the hostname resolves to, if that IP4 address is not

Removing the entry in /etc/hosts for has been shown to work around the problem.
