My mistake....missed the b in front of the lfs in the to:
field....already sent to blfs-support.

> First, the vitals: I am running LFS 4.0 on a k6-2 500 with 384 ram and
> two ethernet cards, eth0 is inward facing and eth1 is outward facing.
> My network both on my lan and on the internet works beautifully. My

> getaddrinfo: Servname not supported for ai_socktype
> I have googled for it and have seen some posts about this message in
> ssh and in the ruby programming language but nothing pertaining to
