I my office there are 2 subnets and 
I have installed samba and have changed the following line in
hosts:      files nisplus dns
hosts:      files nisplus dns wins
Now when Samba is running and i type in ping deployment the ping command
and sucessfully pings this windoze box. However when I type in ssh
deployment I get
ssh: deployment: No address associated with hostname ? Wierd huh ? Is there
a way of
getting this to work ? Why does it do this for ping/traceroute but not for
any other utility ?

Anyone got any ideas about how to get this working ? (Am willing to bribe
with beer and tortillas )
