Subject: [Dnsmasq-discuss] New machine not showing in DNS
I run dnsmasq 2.31-1 on Debian unstable and haven't had a problem with
machines showing in local DNS before.
I have the gateway machine, which runs dnsmasq and has eth0 for the internal
network and eth1 for the internet connection. I then have 2 Windows
machines on the network, which registered themselves OK using DHCP and I can
do name resolution of the machine names from either of the other machines,
or from the gateway, with no problems.
Over the weekend I added another machine to the network - a Sun Ultra 5
which I've loaded Debian unstable onto, and which was able to get an IP
address from dnsmasq no problems.
I am unable to resolve the name of this machine from either my gateway
machine or either of my Windows machines. I added the name of the machine
to /etc/hosts on the gateway, and I can now resolve the name of the machine
from the gateway, but not from either of the Windows machines - I've
restarted dnsmasq on the gateway since adding the machine to the hosts file.
Is there any switches I can set to see what's happening and why this machine
isn't registering correctly in dnsmasq and it isn't able to resolove the
machine name for other clients?
