[solved]Issue with /etc/hosts file under ubuntu

I think terminal outpu is better than long words so:

Quote:
bastien@bastien-laptop:~$ cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.1.1 bastien-laptop
10.192.5.200 3560
10.192.5.11 4507
10.192.5.250 7603_bas
10.192.5.28 7603_haut
10.192.5.253 7609
10.192.5.245 7609_2



# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
bastien@bastien-laptop:~$ ping 4507

I rebooted my laptop but no success... It's the same for all entry i added... Any ideas ?
PS: I'm under ubuntu 9.0.4


edit: hostnames can't start with a number, using c4507 for example works.
