I installed debian, sarge it works as advertized.
I was a little surprised to find that my windows box on the same network could access the apache page with http://sarge
The reason I was surprised was that both sarge and win2k are both using my ISP's DNS.
I have no hosts file on win2k. Then I got to thinking that perhaps it was samba that was pushing out the name.
I did /etc/init.d/samba stop
rebooted win2k and sarge is no longer visable from win2k
started samba and sarge is back
Stopped samba again. Ran ipconfig /flushdns but sarge was still visable.
Why is this?
the hostname sarge is not in smb.conf
How do I control what name is visable to win2k and how do I turn that visablity on and off with out rebooting
