Name Resolution - What's the Solution? :)
Posted on 2009-12-27
Hi there, I've got a fairly diverse network at home, and I really would like all of the machines in my network to be able to see each other without issues when referred to by name. I have a Synology (running linux), several Windows 7 PC's, a Mac, and some entertainment devices like TiVo's, etc. It's pretty spotty as to which computer can see what. Most of my machines are using static IP's so at least I have one reliable way to get to the others.
What do you guys suggest to get reliable name resolution across all of these different machines without a bunch of archaic issues with NetBIOS and modifying HOST files, etc.? I'm using a D-Link router too.
