wins? or what?
Question. I have several Windows clients in our network you have to
use DHCP. The DHCP server is a Linux server, which also acts as the
DNS server. However, a separate Linux server needs to know how to
resolve the NetBios name of one such Windows client (let's say his
NetBios name is ACCT).
If I just type ping acct. It won't find acct. If I type smbclient -L
\\ACCT, it finds it. I have tried changing parts of the smb.conf file,
but I'm not sure that that has anything to do with this problem (or
does it?). I can't put a ACCT entry into the DNS server as it's
address is dynamic.
What options are there for me to get this Linux server to resolve
ACCT's ip address?
