Unable to ping Linux Machine by host name from Win 2k.
Posted on 2003-11-02
1)Our Network consists of all machines connected in a workgrp.All Win 98 machines can ping my Linux machine by hostname..but when i try to do the same from any Win 2k machines ...it gives "Unknown Host Error".
2)Also, i am able to ping Linux machine by ip address from all other machines...but at the same time unable to browse my Samba shares from Windows explorer window by typing \\ipaddr\sharename.
3) My Firewall is turned off.
4) The gateway(Win 2k) uses DNS located on a different network altogether
Any help..greatly appreciated !!!!!!!
