    FQDN ...How Do I Get a Domain Name...


    ...without being connected to a domain?

    I have some piece of software that requires the Fully Qualified Domain Name, and when I paste my license into the software, he turns me down.....wrong FQDN.

    PS: I have a license generated for;
    LINUX.DANIT.SE

    I go into the shell, query HOSTNAME and DOMAINNAME as root. My hostname is linux, that I knew but there's zero/nada/nothing for my domain name (empty line in the shell).

    How do I enable my machine to turn it into a "linux.danit.se" so I could be accepted of this software?

    PS (again):
    I AM RUNNING SuSE 8.2

    Thanks for your help

    I guess that you have to make sure that a reverse lookup on your IP address returns linux.danit.se. One way would be to add it to your /etc/hosts. Another would be to do some clever DNS configuration.
