Hostnames don't always get recognized (using router)
I've got a very weird situation.
At my router configuration panel I see 3 hostnames of my 3 pc's.
But sometimes, when I try to make a connection between 2 of the pc's using its hostname, it doesn't always work.
The 3 computers hostnames are:
- pacman (archlinux pc)
- kreafleur (my mom's wireless winxp laptop)
- pcpcpc (my brother's winxp pc)
They get recognized by the router too
(well, most of the time, sometimes instead of "pacman" it will say "unknown", I also don't know why that is happening)
I use PuTTy on "kreafleur" (wireless winxp laptop) to connect through ssh to "pacman" (archlinux pc) but sometimes it says:
"Host does not exist"
Connecting with the local ip address, however, DOES work.
Does anyone know what could cause this problem?
Personally, I believe the router is just junk...

Do you have any suggestions for me to try ?
just sounds like bad dns records, which you've mentioned nothing about. how is dns working on your network at present?
