Issue configuring DNS Client?


I got two server - Linux(Ubuntu) and Windows(2003) from webhosting company. I can connect to them and login.

Ubuntu Machine:
===============
Code:
/etc/resolv.conf

nameserver 69.40.125.253
nameserver 200.40.146.236
/etc/hosts
==========
Code:
65.99.170.203 s1.prontonetwork.com    s1
65.99.170.202  s2.prontonetworks.com s2
while Windows Machine too shows the first DNS server entry on nslookup.

>nslookup localhost
69.40.125.253



I am able to ping Windows machine from Linux machine but unable to ping Linux from Windows? This could be incomplete domain name(I guess?) What domain name shall I need to add to Windows?
