Can ping hostname.domain but not hostname
I have a network which consists of a WinXP server, Linux Redhat 7 client and WinXP client.
The WinXP server dynamically allocates IP addresses to the clients using DHCP.
The internet works fine on both clients and the server
I can ping using IP and hostname and hostname.domain from both clients to the server.
I can ping using IP, hostname and hostname.domain from both clients to each other
I can ping using IP, hostname and hostname.domain from the server to the XP client
I can ping from the server to the linux client using IP and hostname.domain - but I cannot ping using just the hostname.
Is this a problem? I am about to set up samba but want to have the network running properly first
I have installed samba a few times before but only on servers. Is there any tricks to it when samba is on a DHCP client.
