If you do ping emonpi what ip addresses it resolves to?
[email protected](ro):~$ ping emonpi ping: icmp open socket: Operation not permitted
Interestingly though, I can ssh to 127.0.1.1 and it connects. Where does that IP come from and why is it listed?
[EDIT] Answered my own question
[email protected](ro):~$ cat /etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 localhost ::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters 127.0.1.1 emonpi
Still wondering why though…
[EDIT#2]… Answer here
Still think its an error to display it on the Server page though
There you have it, it comes from the /etc/hosts file.
It’s explained on this link: https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-networking-3/what-does-127-0-1-1-mean-623421/
I agree, looking at the manual, seems to say 127.0.1.1 is there for a workaround and is not the norm. A very commonly used workaround perhaps
