I have a linux server in my LAN. After this server is startup, I can see in my route configure page, that it is registered with the hostname 'mylinux', which is correct. On another machine which runs windows, it cannot ping my linux server with its hostname. On my linux server, it cannot ping any machine in my LAN with their hostname, but it can ping host that is on the Internet. Ex:
ping MyBoxInLan # it reports host unknown
# works alright.
I use dhcpd on my linux server to register it in my LAN. In the /etc/resolve.conf file, it says:
I tried to append the IP of my LAN's route at last, and restart dhcpd, but it won't solve my problem.
So, I come here to look for help. Thanks
