I have 2 PC, Redhat Linux 9.0 on laptop and other Windows 2000 Pro desktop.

Have question about nslookup between 2 PC.
Program that I use called wsping on windows 2000 pro.
When I type in ip address of Linux box, in wsping filed box, is said that no ip entry found.
But when I used wsping with ping ip address of Linux box, is came fine, but nslookup not.

In Linux box, when I bring up the terminal and type in ping of WIndows 2000 Pro box, is fine, and nslookup came up good.

Now how do I get it work on Window 2000 Pro work of nslookup of Linix box of ip address.

Any idea and help me out.


Thanks Chico......

Add the ip address mapping to your windows hosts fille if you wanna talk via windows to linux by name and not just ip.

nslookup will fail everytime unless you set up dns which is over the the top for what you want to do.

And yeah, don't have a clue what wsping is

wsping is an program for Windows 98, 2000, Me, and XP. Is come with ping, nslookup, traceroute, etc.... You can check out at websiste page by doing search wsping, is will tell you all about it.
