    Windows machine not working. I flushed the DNS too:

    Code:
    C:\Users\chrisguk>nslookup ralph
    DNS request timed out.
        timeout was 2 seconds.
    Server:  UnKnown
    Address:  172.22.22.40
    
    DNS request timed out.
        timeout was 2 seconds.

    It looks as though your windows computer does not know to autoappend the dns suffix. What does "ipconfing /all" reveal? Example:

    Re: Unknwon Instance

    FWIW, I messed with some of this stuff the other day when trying to figure out why some names on my home network would resolve and some wouldn't.

    The dns connection specific suffix is set via DHCP and the only way I found to restart networking was via:

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
    I don't know why
    Code:
    sudo service networking restart
    Did not work, however.

    Hi

    Out of interest, what does this return ?

    Code:
    sudo initctl list | grep networking
    Kind regards

    Ubuntu Server 12.04 x64

    Code:
    charles@Thor:~$ sudo initctl list | grep networking
    network-interface-security (networking) start/running
    networking stop/waiting
    I took out the ing and it returned this:

    Code:
    charles@Thor:~$ sudo initctl list | grep network
    network-interface (vboxnet0) start/running
    network-interface (lo) start/running
    network-interface (eth0) start/running
    network-interface-security (network-interface/eth0) start/running
    network-interface-security (network-interface/vboxnet0) start/running
    network-interface-security (network-interface/lo) start/running
    network-interface-security (networking) start/running
    networking stop/waiting

    Re: Unknwon Instance

    That's odd. This is mine
    Code:
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/iplayer % sudo initctl list | grep network
    network-manager stop/waiting
    network-interface (lo) start/running
    network-interface (eth0) start/running
    network-interface-security (network-manager) start/running
    network-interface-security (network-interface/eth0) start/running
    network-interface-security (network-interface/lo) start/running
    network-interface-security (networking) start/running
    networking start/running
    network-interface-container stop/waiting
    matthew-S206:/home/matthew/iplayer %
    Are the config files good ? What does this return ?

    Code:
    sudo initctl check-config

    Code:
    charles@Thor:~$ sudo initctl check-config
    plymouth
      start on: unknown job uxlaunch
      start on: unknown job xdm
      start on: unknown event desktop-shutdown
    plymouth-stop
      start on: unknown job oem-config
      start on: unknown job ubiquity
      start on: unknown job uxlaunch
      start on: unknown job lightdm
      start on: unknown job lxdm
      start on: unknown job xdm
      start on: unknown job kdm
      start on: unknown job gdm
    Server box, no GUI. When I run those commands on my desktop VM, they spit out:

    Code:
    charles@Precise:~$ sudo initctl list | grep network
    network-manager start/running, process 946
    network-interface (lo) start/running
    network-interface (eth0) start/running
    network-interface-security (network-manager) start/running
    network-interface-security (network-interface/eth0) start/running
    network-interface-security (network-interface/lo) start/running
    network-interface-security (networking) start/running
    networking stop/waiting
    network-interface-container stop/waiting
    Code:
    charles@Precise:~$ sudo initctl check-config
    plymouth-stop
      start on: unknown job lxdm
      start on: unknown job xdm
      start on: unknown job kdm
      start on: unknown job gdm
    ....

    Both these boxes have been rebooted recently and networking works fine.

    EDIT: If I try to start the service, it doesn't do anything.

    Code:
    charles@Precise:~$ sudo service networking start
    networking stop/waiting
