When I built this PC with latest fedora I didn't give it a hostname so it named itself as something link localhost.localdomain
Now I changed the hostname to xxx2222.development. I have turned off firewall and SELinux. Have also rebooted
I can ping the box's IP (and I can snmp query it from windows) - but I cannot ping the computer by name from windows. I have tried xxx2222 and xxx2222.development
hostname correctly returns "xxx2222.development" and uname returns "Linux"
I don't really understand linux very well so apologies !!
