I have a network with RH7.2 (netbois name "server"), Mandrake 8.1
("Linuxbox"), Smoothwall ("Smoothwall"), WinNT ("di-bosco"), Win 98
("robertw" & "Nicole") x 2 and Win 2k ("DiBosco2k").
Smoothwall is the DHCP server.
Why would it be that all the Windows machines can ping to a netbios name, eg
ping server, ping Linuxbox etc, but non of the Linux based machines can?
Linux machines all say
unknown host machinename
What do I have read up on to make this work on the linux machines as well?
All the machines bar Smoothwall and RH server are dynamic IP addresses, I am
under the impression this makes things somewhat more complicated!
