Problem with name resolving.
I am having a small network of about 2 linux machines and 3 windows machines. One of the LInux machine acts as a DHCP (ISC) server, Internet Router and DNS (tinydns from djbdns). I have setup the tinydns and it works fine. I have tested the linux machine(client) and am able to ping to all the local machines from the linux machine using ping host1.basic.net. But when I ping it from Windows XP, The following error occured:
I know this problem is not a linux specific problem, but since tinydns is serving the name resolution I posted it here.
Ping request could not find host host1.basic.net. please check the name and try again
When I ran ipconfig/all in windows, it shows the IP address of the local nameserver. and I can ping to this nameserver using the IP Address.
Another weird problem is that I can access internet from the windows machines through the machine which runs nameserver, dhcp server and IP routing.
Have anyone faced this problem before?
any thoughts ??
