   There is a file in RTCS library called RTCShosts.c which has

const HOST_ENTRY_STRUCT RTCS_Hosts_list[] =


/* IP Address   Host Name     Aliases          */

  { 0x7F000001, "localhost",    0       },

  { 0xC0A80001, "", {"www"}  },

  { 0xFFFFFFFF, "broadcast",    0       },

  { 0, 0, 0 },


is this the file similar to /etc/hosts which we have in Linux based system , so entry here will make us the hostname to IP conversion .

I checked the RTCS document nothing mentioned on this file and also on the structure HOST_ENTRY_STRUCT;

typedef struct host_entry_struct


   uint_32        ip_address;

   char_ptr       host_name;

   char_ptr       aliases[MAX_HOST_ALIASES+1];


Is this needed so we put a entry if we try to access from the http using the hostname or telent using the hostname it makes the necessary NAT .


Please put your limelight on the matter .
