Can anyone point me in the right direction on what should i do in order to be able to ping a linux server from inside a windows network (with a domain)?
I've searched on google and found several different info and it doesn't seem to be consistent and up to date. I've read NetBIOS is not the way to do it. How should i do it if I don't have access to the company's router so that is not an option.
I tried using samba with the following config:
workgroup = us.mycompany.com #this is the domain name server string = Samba Server Version %v netbios name = zeus
however i still can't ping the linux server from windows computers.
