Unable to ping my Linux box on windows network


Hi all,

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)

it gives error...... if i say.

ping 192.168.0.150 (ip address of Linserver)

ping reply well ...

I have tried making entry in hosts and lmhosts files on win95 but it did not help..

Any idea what could be wrong...

Rajjay

Dude you need a WINS server to do a netbios to ip resolution...

If you try through lmhosts file then you need to restart system
