Buenas dias a ustedes. Howdy y'all.  Company HQ is in Arkansas. Authoritative DNS server is   Location in Laredo Texas is connected via Frame Relay to subnet 
Local server LAREDO5 has static IP of Debian running dnsmasq, 
samba, and resolvconf, among others.  DHCP is authoritative for subnet. DNS 
is non-authoritative resolver cacher server for subnet, looking to 
for upstream DNS server. WINS and NTP servers also on the same box. dnsmasq 
assigns LAREDO5 as DNS, WINS, and NTP server. Gateway (a Cisco 
voice-over-frame-relay enabled router) is Dynamic range is 
-.150 to -.250.  DHCP client is LAREDO8. dnsmasq assigns IP address No other 
machine in domain has conflicting IP address or machine name. 
PING is unremarkable.  Here's the rub: PING LAREDO8 from any client in the subnet resolves to and returns "Destination Host Unreachable".  (I don't know what 
the results are from other subnets in the domain.)  PING to all other clients yields normally expected results.  Licenses file looks normal for all clients, except that the hostname for shows asterisks. Neither LAREDO8 nor show up in 
the list.  Noob that I am, I am confident that I have made a mistake in configuration, but 
I've scoured carefully all documentation I can find and come up empty.  Happy trails for now,  Loye Young
