I tried tutorial 17 on a single computer, having name ferreira-d

After having started :

  erl -sname pong in a dos box
  erl -sname ping in another dos box

And having stated the pong process in the pong box
tut17:start_pong().

I try to start the ping process in the ping box
But I receive the following error:


tut17:start_ping().

=ERROR REPORT==== 20-Jun-2006::12:33:21 ===

** exited: {badarith,[{erl_eval,eval_op,3},

                      {shell,eval_loop,3}]} **

Is something related tho the unusual machine name ? (ferreira-d)
Thanks
