I am having problems connecting to an Alpha box running multinet. I am
connecting from a Solaris machine.
I can connect with X -query, but if even though it shows up in the
chooser list it will not connect.
I get an error in the log of :

Cannot convert Internet address to host name (ERROR)

The machine is registered in hosts.local and is pingable.

Any clues anyone.
