Internet Exchange Common Registration Problems / How Can I Determine My FQDN?

How Can I Determine My FQDN?
The FQDN (Fully-Qualified Domain Name) of the machine on which Internet Exchange will be installed is required in order to provide a working license. The FQDN is simply the combination of host name and domain name. For example, "ccgate.anon.com"

    ccgate - This is the host name (or say the name of that machine)

    anon.com - This is the domain name (or the extension for a company or an organization)

To determine the FQDN for your machine, the following procedures can be used:

Linux

  • From the Linux prompt execute the command: hostname -f
  • The resulting name is the official FQDN of the machine

Windows 98 / NT

  • Open a DOS prompt, then execute the command: ipconfig /all
  • Look for the value of the "Host Name" field under the Windows 98 / Windows NT IP Configuration
  • The value of the Host Name is the official FQDN of the machine

Windows XP

  • Go to Start/Settings/Control Panel/System
  • In the Computer Name folder, look for the value of Full computer name field
  • The value of the Full computer name is the official FQDN of the machine

Windows 2000

  • Go to Start/Settings/Control Panel/System
  • In the Network Identification folder, look for the value in the Full computer name field
  • The value in the Full computer name field is the official FQDN of the machine

If you still have problems in determining the host name and domain name of your machine, please consult your local area network administrator, your local Internet Service Provider, or IMA Technical Support.
