Hi Thomas,
I installed Beacon 1.1 on my laptop (windows xp).  At first it appeared
that my beacon was not working.  I looked at the local loss link and I
found system at Myip# in the host name. The IP Address was unresolveable.
Neither my hostname or ip address appeared in the central loss or beacon
info links.  I opened windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts and added my ip
mumber and host name.  I  had to do this on my laptop (dhcp) and my node
display (static IP)  After stopping and starting the beacon, my hostname
appeared on the central loss and Beacon info pages.  I did these steps
after verifying I had traffic leaving to the beacon server on ports
10003 thru 10004.  (ethereal)
Thank you,
