I have RedHat OS running on VMWare Player. My host operating system is windows7. Network configuration i am using on my virtual machine is NAT.
I have configured my Guest operating systems /etc/hosts to have following configuration.
[ora112@jipsl01t ~]$ cat /etc/hosts # Do not remove the following line, or various programs # that require network functionality will fail. 127.0.0.1 localhost 192.168.179.129 jipsl01t jipsl01t.com
when i ping from my host operating system, i can ping to 192.168.179.129, but i can not ping to hostname (
jipsl01t ) or hostname alias (
could anybody help me to understand why this is not working.
thanks in advance for any help
