    Hi sir,

    we add to one IP addresss in /etc/hosts TEST3 localhost.

    whats is diff bet loghosts & localhost
    In which situation we will loghosts & localhost?????

    >>>>>>>>>>  localhost refers to the current hosts, and mostly the ip ( loopback address). 

    When we install Unix ( or linux ) , most the services will automatically start with their default configuration. And wherever these default configurations has to use the current host name , it will be refer localhost as current hostname, so that we don’t need to modify every default configuration with the our actual hostname.

    >>>>> loghost alias is used by syslog to determine the destination for log messages.
