Some of hosts in my network I need to resolve are not presented and in
my Dns server and not to be added to Dns, as following, it will not able
to be resolved.
I need that hosts would be resolved at Ubuntu either using broadcast or
The same as Windows behaviour: DNS, NetBIOS lookup, WINS, etc.
And if Dns resolving are failed, NetBIOS lookup or WINS is engaged.
