I am using Redhat 7.1 Linux, I am new to linux, I have configured network setting on Linux machine with same Ip addressing scheme what I have winodws network . Now I am trying to ping linux machine with its name . it does not ping though it ping by its ip address. e.g I am sitting on win95 m/c giving
folowing command to ping linux box.
Ping Linserver (here linserver is linux server name)
