I have a test server that is running Ubuntu Server in a windows network.
Networking is configured as follows
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp hostname ca
cat /etc/hostname returns
But when I use the command
host 10.49.156.196 (its current IP address) from another machine on the network, it returns as follows:
188.8.131.52.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer owner-pc.xxxxx.xxx
I can access the machine via SSH and browser using IP address, but not by name
Any suggestions? I tried installing samba/nmbd as suggested in another post, but to no avail.
