[erlang-questions] Problems when running distributed pingpong

I tried adding both lines to both machines.  It still doesn't work.
Besides, can I bind two host names to the same IP in the same line?  It
doesn't looks like the form of sample binding.

In addition, instead of changing the hosts file, could I "locally" change
the IPs/hostnames binding inside erlang?

Regards
Jiansen
