I have a problem with IP Address resolution in my lan. The following is the code that i used :
InetAddress IAddr = InetAddress.getByName("220.127.116.11"); System.out.println(IAddr.getHostName());
The above code fails to resolver the IP Address. I am using RedHat Linux 9. If i try
i get the Hostname, as expected. Can anyone help me as to why fails to IAddr.getHostName() return the hostame.
