Linux in a Win environment
Posted on 2004-08-31
Hi experts, I have a Windows workgroup environment and we just set up a Linux based internal (for department use only) web page.
I am trying to find out what is the best way to make the Linux server accessible from the Windows machines by NAME and not only by IP address?
Right now when users typein the IP address of the web page in their browsers, the web page displays just fine. I only want to make it easy for the users and have them type in a name instead of a number.
We have DHCP and WINS running inside. We do not have DNS running. The web page doesn't have to be accessible from outside; it's for internal use only.
So, how do I 'register' a local domain name for the Linux srv and make it accessible from the Windows users?
Please, be more specific in your suggestions since my Linux skills are rather basic.
Thank you for your time.
