Subject: Net::Domain::hostname() returns 'localhost' under mod_perl
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 687b
Net::Domain::hostname() correctly returns my computer's hostname (HPXP) in a simple command-line program, but returns 'localhost' when used in a mod_perl handler. Net::Domain::hostfqdn() also has the same problem, but Sys::Hostname::hostname() works fine. The attached handler module outputs: Net::Domain::hostname() = localhost Net::Domain::hostfqdn() = localhost Sys::Hostname::hostname() = HPXP It is configured as: <Location /hostnametest> SetHandler modperl PerlResponseHandler HostnameTest </Location> This is using perl-5.12.2 with its original libnet (1.22), mod_perl-2.0.5 and Apache httpd-2.2.17, built with MS Visual Studio 2010 SP1 and running on Windows XP SP3.
