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.
Suppose I have the following situation. I have a Linux box sitting inside a local network, and that box will periodically ping the ip addresses of other devices on the network to make sure they are up. Also assume I know the MAC addresses of these devices, which I obtained via ARP at some point in the past.
