http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I have a small network,all my machines get their IPs dynamically in network When I ping linux machine fron win7 or win2k8, linux responds. when I try pinging any machine from linux it says "unknown host sierac". Recently, I created a new linux machine, linux machines can not talk to each other if I dont add their respective ips in the host file, but both of them can be contacted by windows machines through ping or remote desktop. Thanks for your help (HowTos)
