http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, 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. 2) FC9 firewall is disabled. what might have been wrong???? (HowTos)
