I've been trying to configure my Ubuntu 12.04 network settings using the howtoforge
guide and I've ran into a problem with the hostname. All of my network setting seemed fine and I could ping google and everything until I tried to configure the hostname. Right when I did that I could not ping websites, but I can ping LAN devices. I'm guessing it's a DNS error, but I'm new to Ubuntu server so I'm not sure. Any help would be much appricaited, I can provide any information as needed. I'm trying to use this server as a file server and I would like to run a minecraft server as well. Thank you.
