Hi, that problem has been solved!!! My machine have the name
rt_dev.example.com and i change to rtdev.example.com ,
and it works fine, the problem was the underscore.

    That's not surprising... an underscore is not a valid character in a hostname, if I recall the RFC correctly. I'm surprised your DNS server allowed it.

This is true in only some contexts. Email, for example - SMTP does not
permit underscores in domain names appearing in SMTP commands and
responses. In most other contexts, underscores and miscellaneous other
characters are permitted but discouraged. See, for example, the first
paragraph of page 5 of RFC 2317.

I’m surprised your DNS server allowed it.

All 256 octets are legal in DNS labels; any (supposedly)
general-purpose DNS server that doesn’t support them is broken.

I stand corrected.

(And exposed as a dodderer. Undoubtedly I’m remembering an older RFC; a
vague association makes me think somewhere in the 1100s, but I won’t be
arsed to go find it just now. Come to think of it, I’m pretty sure the
same RFC prohibited a leading digit in a token – i.e. 3com.com – and I
know that’s been relaxed.)

Well, RFC 952 (“DOD INTERNET HOST TABLE SPECIFICATION”) does say

  1. A “name” (Net, Host, Gateway, or Domain name) is a text string up
    to 24 characters drawn from the alphabet (A-Z), digits (0-9), minus
    sign (-), and period (.). Note that periods are only allowed when
    they serve to delimit components of “domain style names”. (See
    RFC-921, “Domain Name System Implementation Schedule”, for
    background). No blank or space characters are permitted as part of a
    name. No distinction is made between upper and lower case. The first
    character must be an alpha character. The last character must not be
    a minus sign or period. A host which serves as a GATEWAY should have
    "-GATEWAY" or “-GW” as part of its name. Hosts which do not serve as
    Internet gateways should not use “-GATEWAY” and “-GW” as part of
    their names. A host which is a TAC should have “-TAC” as the last
    part of its host name, if it is a DoD host. Single character names
    or nicknames are not allowed.

These restrictions may be what you’re thinking of - but, as you say,
they are long outdated now. RFC952 also says the hosts file can be
fetched from 10.0.0.51…
