first, the info you might want about my system:
i486 running RedHat 5.1, kernel 2.0.35 (outdated, I know)
Here are the names/IP's of my main computers, as far as tinydns cares:
Linux box: linuxbox.local 192.168.0.13
PC: peecee.local 192.168.0.10
Mac: g4.local 192.168.0.1
Here's the problem: I can't seem to use the linux box as a nameserver from a Mac! From the PCside, it all works fine - and the linux box's NETbios name is different, so I know it's not "cheating" and using that. Does this make any sense? The Mac can access the network just fine - ping, access the website, etc., but whenever I type in (from a browser) "linuxbox.local", I get "The specified server could not be found." Now, I know that the Mac works, at least with most things - I'm on dialup, and both the Mac and the PC have the same DNS entries, which seems to work. I deleted the ISP's DNS entries and entered the linux box's IP (192.168.0.13), but no luck.
Any help would be great.
What happens on the mac if you try http://linuxbox.local./ (notice the extra dot before the slash)?
