Aha.  So http://www.erlang.org/doc/doc-5.5.3/erts-5.5.3/doc/html/erl.htmlsays
that for -name, you have to specify
, which contradicts the example at
http://www.erlang.org/doc/doc-5.5.3/doc/reference_manual/distributed.html#11.2.
(Could someone correct the docs?)

Next question: in the absence of an fqdn for my computer, what should I
specify for the Host part?  An IP address doesn't seem to work.

Thanks.

Dave
