    STAFConnectionProviderConnect: Error resolving host name: Error getting hostent structure for host name

    I get this error while trying to ping the host.

    I have changed  Network interface statement
    #interface tcp library STAFTCP Option Secure=No Option port=6500
    interface tcp library STAFTCP

    Is this the cause for this?

    There's a problem in your TCP network configuration when resolving the host name (not a problem in your STAF configuration).  See sections "3.1.3 Explain RC 16 when attempting to send a STAF request to a remote machine ", "3.1.4 Why can't my STAF machines communicate?" and "3.1.5 Why aren't my entries in /etc/hosts being used for STAF communication (particularly on Linux SLES)?" in the STAF FAQ at for more information.
