Quite simply, my problem is that I want to be able to type 'ssh <hostname>' instead of 'ssh <ipaddress>'
The problem is that ssh fails to resolve the hostname and thus only successfully connects by ip address.
I do NOT want to update the /etc/hosts file every single time I connect a computer or DHCP assigns a different address to a computer, that is not an option.
I have a linksys WRT54G v6 (so no DD-WRT
) and all the computers are connected to the same switch.
This is not specifically an SSH problem, ping <hostname> does not work either, so it has something to do with the way the hostname's are resolved and/or the communication between DHCP and DNS inside the linksys box.
