Node name and host name

Good day,

Do your nodes use the same cookie? If they do then may be
hosts don't know each other by short name. You
can add short name for its IP to your local /etc/hosts(on unix) or
create file `.hosts.erlang' in your home directory and then call
`net_adm:world()' before to make nodes known. Look at detailed
explanation in `net_adm' documentation.

Best Regards,
