DNS - resolving names without needing the FQDN
I have Fedora Core 4 running and it has been working quite well. I have one last thing that I would like to clean up. The DNS name resolution.
I am a network engineer for a company here in Orlando and I have a PIX establishing a vpn tunnel to my office. This allows me to work from home Linux has made that a lot easier and faster.
I have my resolv.conf file configured for our corporate DNS server and for a public DNS server. It is working, but I have to specify the FQDN to access computers on the company network and I would really like to just specify the host name. The corporate name server I am pointing to is running Windows 2000 with the Microsoft DNS if that makes any difference. So, for a quick example. I would like to..... ping station1 versus station1.mycompany.com
I hope that I have given enough information and made things clear on what I would like to do.
