Using an IP address as the host name when connecting to a database

By: Borland Staff

Abstract: Communications Diagnostics Utility does not allow an IP address

Problem:
I received the error "Unable to complete network request to host "".
Failed to locate host machine.
The specified name was not found in the hosts file or Domain Name Services.

Solution:
An IP address can't be used in place of a host name in the server field for a
DB connection within the Commuinications Diagnostics utility.  . If you try to
use an IP address, the above error will happen.
