I am fairly newbie in linux. I tried to setup named (bind-9.2.3) on a small network, for testing and learning purposes only. I have a linux box with two network cards (2 subnets). I have no connection to internet. I want to configure the named to resolv the names from the two subnets. It seems that it works, but when I ping a machine with short name (i created a domain of mine mydom.) even the local machine (linux box) wouldn't respond, but if i ping with "fqdn" i.e mypc.mydom it works. I would like to figure out why my named doesn't resolves short names. Does it has anything to do with nmbd ?
