Description Viraj Alankar 2000-10-28 21:48:53 EDT
The output of who shows the FROM field of the user blank.
Comment 1 Daniel Roesen 2000-10-31 08:23:54 EST
Confirmed. It shows the FROM location when using the -l switch, though.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-01-06 14:41:45 EST
Add -l if you want to see the FROM field. I'm loathe to change the default
behavior of existing
commands when there are a adequate workarounds. Here's a bash alias for example:
	alias who="/usr/bin/who -l"
Comment 3 Daniel Roesen 2001-01-06 16:36:23 EST
RH 6.0 who(1) shows FROM location.
RH 6.2 who(1) does not.

From man who:
  -l, --lookup      attempt to canonicalize hostnames via DNS

So "-l" is not a "show FROM field" switch.

I could bet this is a bug in newer who(1) versions.
