I hope someone can help here.
I installed Ubuntu 12.04 Server fresh install. It is connected to a local network 192.168.33.0/24.
I assigned a static IP:
When I ping a local PC within my network using the IP, I receive a normal responce:auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
dns-nameservers 192.168.33.1 41.xxx.xxx.xxx
But when I ping the same PC using the computer name "Martin-Ltp", it seems as if my ping heads out into the open www, and replies with a different IP:ping 192.168.33.150
PING 192.168.33.150 (192.168.33.150) 56(84) bytes of data.
