When I try to start my bot I get the error Hostname self-lookup failed or Couldn't assign the requested IP. How do I fix this?

This means the bot isn't able to resolve its own hostname on the shell (possibly due to a server misconfiguration). Try setting the my-hostname and my-ip settings in your bot's config file to the correct hostname and IP of your shell (e.g. set my-hostname "shell1.niceshells.net" and set my-ip "555.43.254.133"). Alternatively, try using set my-hostname "localhost" and set my-ip "127.0.0.1" exactly as shown.

As it's my own shell....

How can I fix it?

(Debian Linux Lenny)
