On a windows 7 client, when I ping a LAN host MYSTERY, it gives me the correct IP. However, when I do nslookup MYSTERY, it says non-existent domain. I checked both the DNS listed in ipconfig and find that the hostname MYSTERY is indeed not listed. The DHCP server also does not have the entry.
I am currently trying to get an IMx6 processor development board running ubuntu (Linaro) to ping an external IP address and also use apt-get. I have managed to get apt-get to partially work and have installed firefox which does allow me to browse the internet.
