View Full Version : [ubuntu] can't connect to server with putty

November 22nd, 2009, 12:32 AM
I can't seem to connect to my server using putty and my server's name under Ubuntu. It works just fine under windows if I enter the server name and ssh port, but the only way I can connect in Ubuntu is if I type in the ip address.this also happens in Firefox in that I can type the name of the server in and see the Apache page from windows but not on Linux.Since I don't have static ips set up on my network I assume the server address is going to change from time to time so i would rather use server name. does anyone know if or how I can fix this?
