Browsing Intranet Sites


How do I set up firefox in Linux so that it directly goes to the relevant sites in my intranet?

Suppose I am a in www.xyz.ac.in

and I want to access abc.xyz.ac.in
In windows IF I typed abc in IE it would go automatically to the correct site. RIght now in Linux I have to do abc.xyz.ac.in .

How do I set up such behaviour in Firefox?

In addition to Nathaneal's post I've seen software firewall's, router's and gateway's/firewalls block local lan clients from accessing other boxen on lan at port 80 FWIW.

what do you get from 'dig abc'
compared to windows 'nslookup abc'

perhaps you need to setup your netbois client and wins client correctly - though i could be really mistaken on this one!
