Regardless, it doesn't work.

Does anyone out there have working aliases for hosts on their LANs? If
so, is there a trick? Some sort of magic incantation? Maybe a blood
sacrifice of some sort I must make? (My cat draws blood from time to
time, if that would count.)

For some strange reason I don't know about, the command "host" queries the dns server first, or only, while ping and other commands queries the file hosts first.

I have, in "/etc/hosts":

172.16.168.128 bambi

(a small windows under vmware)

then:

cer@nimrodel:~> host bambi
Host bambi not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

However:

cer@nimrodel:~> ping bambi
PING bambi (172.16.168.128) 56(84) bytes of data.
- From 192.168.153.1: icmp_seq=1 Packet filtered
- From 192.168.153.1 icmp_seq=1 Packet filtered
- From 192.168.153.1 icmp_seq=2 Packet filtered

(which is correct as vmware is not running now)
