Hello,

I trieng to login to a remote machine, but if I login, and ran command

who am i
root ttyp0 Jul 31 06:27 (192.168.1.12)

The problem is why it is showing the IP address, which we usually notice in connecting to a machine which is connected locally (LAN).

I am sure, i am not in the LAN.

I am using PUTTY to connect, what could be the problem, can anyone help me.


Thank you,
kath.

It's giving you the ip. putty connects over the network.

Are you not connected to the remote box?

Plus, who is POSIX.2. If the box on the other end is not POSIX-compliant , or is a version of , say, Solaris or HPUX, from before 1994, then it won't work the way you expect.
