I am using FC9 and internet is working fine on it.
Well, I ping to google, it is resolving but if I ping by hostname to other LAN computers. it gives error : unknown host.
but if i ping with IP address it is pinging.
NOTE : 1) My firewall is acting as a dns server and other windows systems are resolving it.
I have a home network of a few computers, one of which is an iMac running Mac OS and another is a PC running Windows 7. The PC is able to ping the iMac both by IP and hostname, but the iMac can only ping the PC by IP. I'd like it to be able to ping the PC by hostname as well.
I have found (and tried to solve for the past 6 hours) an intriguing situation....
I have a new install of ubuntu server 12.04 on fairly old hardware (core duo, two onboard network controllers).
I have 2 networks that are connected but usually kept separate. one is 192.168.10.x and one is 192.168.5.x. If I set up both of them i can ping computers in the 10.x network, but not in the 5.x network.
