    (Debian) My server doesn't get recognized by my router?


    I've got a raspberry pi running raspbian server edition. It's a modified debian that runs well on the rPi. My problem is that the only way I can ssh into it with putty is through the static ip. My router doesn't recognize the hostname; it shows the mac address as the name. This causes the pi not to show my website online (I think). The only way I've gotten it to work is using my other linux server to forward using virtual hosts, and that has to use the ip address, too. However, now that I have my other server off, the website doesn't work and I can't ssh (or find it anywhere on the network) using the hostname.

    I have nothing in /etc/samba/dhcp.conf, but i edited /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf to have "(myhostname)" instead of gethostname() but putty still can't find my hostname and my router can't, either. It didn't fix the issue with nothing showing up when I go to my website.
