Yes, i know, if i modify hosts file both in linux and in windows machine i will not have more problems to ping those 2 new Debian servers.
But there are a lot of people (and computer) that use services running on those servers.
I hope there's a way to to the job wothout modify every single users machine.

Or not? :-D
