I'm trying to set up a couple of samba shares on my server. It's not working, so I started through the Samba checklist, and never made it past the ping test.
So, my clients (all running Windows XP) can ping my server, by IP address or by name.
My server cannot ping any client by name. It can ping some, but not all, by IP address. Trying FQDNs makes no difference.
It's probably something simple/stupid, so don't assume anything.
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static
What do I need to check/learn to get my TCP/IP right? TIA.
