    good link val.

    in non-techy terms, its like a street address for your computer. say you run a website, you have www.mysite.com or something. In order to get that site, you have to register with a company or a DNS host. they say "well your ip is xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, which now points to www.mysite.com"

    therefore www.mysite.com and xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (ip address) or now the same thing.

    I think he might've meant something along the lines of DNS translation and stuff... but yeah, article should cover it.

    just for future reference (and incase the links go dead)

    there are 2 really quick ways where you can get the IP address of a hostname,

    first is PING, it may not give you any echo replies, but it will give you the IP address

    ex: ping www.google.com

    second is NSLOOKUP, which can do a lot more than just give you the IP address, but i will not bore you with all the details

    ex: nslookup www.google.com
    [gloworange]find / -name \"*your_base*\" -exec chown us:us {} \\;[/gloworange] [glowpurple]Trust No One[/glowpurple][shadow] Use Hardened Gentoo [/shadow]
