I seem to have trouble pinging servers on the internal network as well as the internet using hostnames.
So if I ping a server "webern" on the local network, I get back:
ping: unknown host webern
But if I ping by IP, It pings ok.
I can't remeber where I set the DNS settings....I've been outta the linux world for a while...
Thanks In Advanced!
there is one file called in /etc/resolv.conf. If it is not there then you have to create one.
once you do "vi resolv.conf" then you have to enter following info.
above two nameserver are DNS server that worked for me. Otherwise your internet provider has their own DNS information.
Now I can ping google and other internet sites using names :)
By I still cannot ping local servers or workstations.
My resolv.conf file:
nameserver 192.168.32.2 #Domain AD,DNS,DHCP Server
nameserver 126.96.36.199 #Internet DNS's
