It really does sound like a networking issue. I would guess the
problem is that the hostname you input does not resolve correctly.

Since many of the files and varaibles you mention sound specific to
SuSE, you'll probably be better off asking questions in an SuSE
forum, or at least a more general Linux-help forum.

Sorry I can't be of more help,
