Host name channel options
There are three options that, for any type of channel, configure the fundamentals of a channel's own "host name" (
official_host_name), the channel's knowledge of the host name of the system on which it is operating (
local_host_alias), and optionally remote "hosts" with which it communicates (
additional_host_names); these three basic options correspond to separate syntactic components of channel configuration in legacy configuration, but are set via options in Unified Configuration.
In addition to these three fundamental options, other channel options relating (in the case of TCP/IP channels) both to a system's own host name and to remote host names include
lastresort, and the set of
noremotehost channel options.
