Thanks for your help. I have found a solution to my problem. I was trying to use a different domain name in the hosts file, which I could not do, as the hosts file only works with the domain the Sun box has been setup with.

I have discovered by creating a DNS table file within the /etc/name.data directory I can have URLs with different domain names.

The reason why I need to do this is that a college that I work for uses a bilingual website address, so I need two URLs that point to the same address. One in english and another in welsh.

I might well take a look at that book though.

getent -- get entries from administrative databases SYNOPSIS
getent database [key ...] getcap database [key ...] DESCRIPTION
The getent program retrieves and displays entries from the administrative database specified by database, using the lookup order specified in nsswitch.conf(5). The display format for a given database is as per the ``traditional'' file format for that database. database may be one of: Database Display format disktab entry ethers address name gettytab entry group group:passwd:gid:[member[,member]...] hosts address name [alias ...] netgroup (host,user,domain) [...] networks name network [alias ...] passwd user:passwd:uid:gid:gecos:home_dir:shell printcap entry protocols name protocol [alias ...] rpc name number [alias ...] services name port/protocol [alias ...] shells /path/to/shell If one or more key arguments are provided, they will be looked up in database using the appropriate function. For example, passwd supports a numeric UID or user name; hosts supports an IPv4 address, IPv6 address, or host name; and services supports a service name, service name/pro- tocol name, numeric port, or numeric port/protocol name. If no key is provided and database supports enumeration, all entries for database will be retrieved using the appropriate enumeration func- tion and printed. For cgetcap(3) style databases (disktab, printcap) specifying a key, lists the entry for that key, and specifying more arguments after the key are used as fields in that key, and only the values of the keys are returned. For boolean keys true is returned if the key is found. If a key is not found, then false is always returned. DIAGNOSTICS
getent exits 0 on success, 1 if there was an error in the command syntax, 2 if one of the specified key names was not found in database, or 3 if there is no support for enumeration on database. SEE ALSO

A getent command appeared in NetBSD 3.0. It was based on the command of the same name in Solaris and Linux. BSD
