Forgive the noob question: I have a server that I would like to address by name from clients on the local network, i.e. instead of typing
I would like to type
I don't really know what goes into this, apart from being fairly certain that I've seen this done without having to edit the /etc/hosts file on each client on the network. I have configured my router to assign the same IP every time the server boots up. Should there be another option on the router to do this? Or do I need to configure something on the server?
OS is Ubuntu Server 10.10.
