Does that mean that you can't resolv/ping your linux machine from
another computer? If so, you need to configure your local DNS.

If you dont have a DNS, you may want to edit /etc/hosts on the other

-> man hosts

> /etc/resolv.conf
> nameserver

Is this the DNS of your ISP?

Looks O.k. to me.

There is no such thing in Linux.
