|Easy question - Uknown Host
||[Dec. 3rd, 2005|01:17 pm]
I just need windows to be able to ping and address my linux machine by name and not IP. From windows, I can ping the machine but when I try "ping linux", I get "unknown host linux". Obviously, the machine is on the network because the site can be browsed and ping'ed from other systems by IP but not name.|
This is such a simple problem that I feel embarrased to even post it. But I'm lost. I went to Network Config-> Host and added 127.0.0.1, linux, linux hoping that would do it.
I would also add the IP but I obtain the IP address automatically from a Linksys router. So the question is what am I missing?
