Naming Hosts

To make using a VPN easier, nodes can be named so that their name can be used instead of their address.

This can be done by editing /etc/hosts:

$> sudo nano /etc/hosts

For each node a line with

IP-ADDRESS  NAME

needs to be added (e.g. 10.0.0.1 node1.vpn).

It is a good idea to add a common suffix to all nodes of one vpn like .vpn.
