I have what I think is called an IP alias, which is used to access a Windows file server from a Unix server. The path on Unix looks something like:
which is somehow resolved as:
This is used within an ftp command from a SAS program running on Unix. I know very little about Unix, but I believe the alias is configured on Unix itself (not by the SAS server). As a normal (non-root) user, is there a way of looking up this alias and seeing the IP address it refers to? Or even better, a list of aliases and their IP addresses?
Perhaps I'm using the wrong terminology? My Google searches have turned up command aliases, but otherwise I've found very little helpful information.
