Enabling WINS lookup
I'm running 10.1 as a client on a pretty old NT server domain which runs WINS rather than DNS to resolve hostnames.
I've been messing around all day and can't for the life of me work out how to get suse to resolve hostnames using a WINS server.
I've cracked it for samba. I.e. i can see network shares using 'smb://hostname/share'. However, if try from the terminal:
tkd@TKDSUSE:~> ping tt100269
ping: unknown host tt100269
Doing the same using an IP or a hostname which is definitely in DNS is fine too.
Can anyone help?
