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?
my router is allocating dynamic ip addresses and it turns out that if i install samba and join it to my workgroup then i can connect to the machine by name from a browser on a windows box.
