I have Ubuntu Server (10.10) running. There are two server components active: The fileserver is Samba and OpenSSH for remote access. It is a home network, (workgroup).
When I use OpenSSH from windows, the servername can be used instead of an Ip (servername.local)
When I ping servername.local from windows, the IP is resolved.
When I try to connect to a Samba share from Windows (win7) I need to supply the ip address. I can't use the computername. Is it possible to configure this in a way that I can use computername instead?
