In a host file I can setup a short or long name and have it resolve to an IP

example: gateway

On my NW 6.0 SP4 server I have created a "" zone and have created
an "A" record called gateway. I can ping "", but not
"gateway". In the example above I can ping either the long or short name.

I need to be able to ping the short name. Using Micro$oft's DNS server I
can ping the short name. Is there a way to use the short name on a Novell
DNS server?
