Hi Mikkel,

There is no reference to ghost.localhost.com or the IP address that was
referenced in the error messages anywhere on my system (at least in the
places that I have looked, which include the relevant config files.)

That's why I cannot figure out where that hostname is coming from.

I have made no changes in the firewall or SELinux settings for some
time.

I am kinda lost here and there is still no joy with a Google search,
where now, several of the first hits are my own post above...  :-)

Regards,

Marc
