From Linux how connect to LAN web page I have?
I have a Linux server I named "small" I have a blog I type every day on it. I made it's index.html page have links on it and one is to my blog that is stored on it so I can just go there and click that on.
On Windows XP all I have to do is type in the address bar is small and it goes there. Or type http://small , or //small . Or I can get to it's files on XP by typing \\small
But when I am using Firefox on Linux on my Laptop that has Fedora on it. I can type in http://small or just small and it will not go there.
I found out I can type smb://small and it gets to it's files same as on XP if I type \\small but how do I get to it's web page on a Linux browser? I did apache://small just guessing because smb is like samba to apache it don't work.
O yes. I all so did http://IP_of_small. IP_of_small is it's IP address. But that don't work. I all so just tryed it's IP alone. Still don't work.
I just don't know what words to sercher for to find this out. I hope some one can help.
I just found out what was wrong.
Wow I was all day working on this.
I had it's IP wrong! It's IP is 192.168.101.112 the lap top I was on IP is 192.168.101.106 Now I can get to it's web page with http://192.168.101.112 I still can't with just http://small. I guess I have to add that to the /etc/hosts file now to just type in http://small.
There I just did that added a line to /etc/hosts like this "192.168.101.112 small" after about 3 minutes waiting I could just type in http://small and it goes there.
Looks like no problum now. It was my fault not knowing the IP address good. It's set up for DHCP so if I take it some other place. That's why I named it small becuase it is small. About 9 by 8 by 4 inch. in size. I put it together my self.
