|local network learning|
have a local home network of several (windows) computers and have just installed debian on an old one (clean install windows wiped off), i've set the hostname of this machine to: simon
i've done a basic install and it works no problem, i can remotely access the machine from its ip address ( found from ifconfig) however i cannot access it from what i think is the hostname eg. simon
i've checked the hostname with
and it comes back as simon.
am i missing something? do i need to do something in order for the network to recognise the hostname?
