dns host name registration

I am having trouble registering my qnx host names with the local dns servers. In Linux (Ubuntu) I do this by editing the /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf file to include the line "send host-name “computerName” " and I’m then able to resolve the alias “computerName” to an IP by using “nslookup computerName” or “ssh computerName”.

Is there a way to do this in qnx?

Using the “Network” utility in qnx, I entered my desired host name in the “Host Name” field on the “Network” tab. This placed the line “hostname computerName” in the file /etc/net.cfg . This name has not been registered with the dns servers on my LAN.

  • note - this is a re-post from the “applications” category. In hind sight, this category would have been more appropriate.

See “dhcp.client -h”…

I ran the command “/usr/sbin/dhcp.client -h computerName”. I am still unable to associate the alias with the ip address. Any other suggestions?

Thanks for the reply.
