Post Suse Std Server 8.0 cannot ping from XP using host.domain name


Using home network, static IP via same subnet. From linux server, able to ping using ip, host name, and host.domain name. However, from client, only able to ping using ip and host name. This is a problem.. using oracle via client which requires fully qualified host.domain name in url.

via hosts file:
127.0.0.0 local host
192.168.0.2 linux.xxxx.com linux

via HOSTNAME
linux.xxxx.com

Please advise how to configure to be able to ping server via fully qualified name. Thank you.

At the xp client, under network properties. There should be an entry for the dns server that your network is using. Or, you could put an entry in the /etc/hosts file ( on xp ) similar to the examples they give. Don't forget to save it as "hosts" ( with the quotes ) so the file doesn't get any txt extensions added.

Thumbs up

I was able to modify the local XP host file and add an entry. This resolved the issue. Thanks for the suggestion.

Oracle is telling me that I should be able to nslookup linux from my client and return the host ip and fully qualified name. I am still unable to perform this from the client. Do you have any advise. Thanks.

That grey matter is getting overrun by linux stuff!
It seems like the settings in network properties should have an option to get the dns info from your linux box. Are you using the linux box as a dns and dhcpd server?

I am using an Ethernet Controller with ip 192.168.0.2. On my server, I have identified my host and domain name with a domain search = linux.xxxx.com

I am not using DHCP. Simply static IP addressing via host / client. Please advise.

Question

Any suggestions on how I can perform a successful nslookup either from my XP client, or the Linux Server. I am able to ping via IP, Host Name, and Fully Qualified Name from either the Server or the client.

I am using static IP's for the client and server on the same subnet. No proxy, SSL, MZ, etc.

Any suggestions. Please advise. Thanks.

What machine are you using for the dns server? If you don't have a dns server and you are using the dns server from you ISP, thier server doesn't know anything about your network computer names so you would have to put that in the /etc/hosts file at the linux box and at the xp box.

I do have an appropriate entry in the host files for both machines. This allowed me to be able to ping using the fully qualified name.

I am not using my ISP's DNS Server. Just using static IP's in same subnet. Not using DNS either...or at least I dont believe so when in YAST.

I believe my isue has now ben resolved. Oracle is telling that i should be fine now that I can ping using the fully qualified name.

Again, I appreciate your assistance.
