Im currently contracting for telstra and some of my fellow geeks and I
have been setting up our own Linux Redhat 7.3 box. The box is connected
to a massive network consisting mainly of WINNT boxes and servers.
The problem we seem to be having is that all the boxes on the network
can ping the Linux machine via it's hostname, however, the linux box
cannot ping anyone by their hostname but can ping using IP's.
Our resolv.conf file looks something like this:
and route looks something like this.
Dest Gateway Genmask
Proxy Server * 255.255.255.0
127.0.0.1 * 255.0.0.0
default proxy server 0.0.0.0
If anyone could help me resolve this issue I would be supergrateful!
P.S I can't access this email from work so, if you could send any suggestions to conor.cunningham at team.telstra.com
that would be most excellent.
