comment Error message; [IP]in-addr.arpa has no PTR record:
But wait a second. All I really want to do is see the names of the computers, like in the network pane on OSX/Windows. I can see the names from my Macbook in the Finder GUI, but I want to be able to replicate that behavior on Ubuntu Server.

A nameserver, huh? What should I look into to go about implementing that?

The problem with that is that I am using the server edition-- no GUI

Could it have anything to do with the fact that I gave the computer a static IP without configuring the router in any way?

Still got an error. Here's an example: W: Failed to fetch main.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty/InRelease

Or perhaps more to the point, which alternative servers should I use?

comment Can SSH with IP but not host name?
Is there a more universal way to do this? I was hoping to using the computer's hostname for a variety of other things on the network. I can't hold on to the static IP indefinitely, I just convinced my superior to let me use one as a stopgap measure.

Is nslookup preinstalled on most UNIX-likes? Or must I download it?
