- Windows host running XP SP3
- (Virtual) Ubuntu Server 10.04 (fresh install, only selected "LAMP Package" option during installation.
- Tested on VMWare Player / VirtualBox
I can ping by ip from one box to the other with no problem. When i try to ping by host name (in linux or windows), i get a message telling me that the host could not be found.
I've been reading the docs and searched throught the forums of VMWare and VBox, but as this is my first attempt to run a linux box i feel i'm missing some configuration or package installation to make this work.
Note: i need the linux box to use a host-only adapter because we`re setting up a virtual machine for development and the LAMP stack in it must be local for the workstations that will use it. We don't want to user bridged adapters because if we do, we'll need to set up a different name for each VM copy to be used.
