I have a ubuntu-Server 16.04 LTS running and fully updated. I can access it through IP Address and hostname.local, but if I try to access it with just hostname it can't reach the address.
host files are properly configure.
Details about My hosts:
- ubuntu-server 16.04 (lets call it ubuntuserver for better undestanding);
- ubuntu 17.10 (called ubuntudesktop);
- windows (called firstwin);
- windows (called secondwin).
Note that I can ping ubuntudesktop with just the hostname with any Operating System
