Unable to connect to machine via hostname, DNSs seems ok
I spent a lot of time, trying to resolve what could be a problem I have but without success. So I will try to describe situation I have and I hope someone will see what I cannot see.
So, I have an linux machine in my network. I installed debian on it and it is fine. During installation I was offered to configure net. with dhcp and settings for domain. I got ip address and I can log into machine using ip address. The problem is, the address is dhcp dependent so change daily-I am not responsible for dhcp/dns server. In my /etc/resolv.conf I have name servers as on some win machines, and for them is possible to log to them using either ip address or hostname.
When I do as root on linux machine #host host_ip dns_ip
Using domain server:
Host reverse_host_ip.in-addr.arpa not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
I got domain name...
I got hostname
I read many forums, mailing lists, docs, but still cannot to resolv this issues and log into machine using hostname.
Any suggestion is welcome
