I do not accept that my WinXP is better than my Debian!
this is certainly the most active NG I ever see for Debian. Let me
expose my simple issue, ans tell that spent a day googling and HowToing
w/o any positive results.
On a DHCP enabled LAN behind a working SMC7404WBRA I do have a mixture
of PCs with either Win OS or customized Debian (Sarge 2.6.8-15). Windows
PC's are able to find Debian computers by computer's name (i.e ssh with
PuTTy or with ie browser), while Debian machine need the IP address to
find another Debian machine for shh or Mozilla.
On the other hand, I've been able to get my samba & apache server
working w/o any problems so far... This is just because I prefer name to
IP address to easy all my remote session. I have a local DNS issue???? I
do not understand and I do not want to blow everything. And I would like
to keep DHCP.
Looking for assistance for this little issue anticipated thanks,
