I wonder if there is a possibility to access LAN connected PCs (linux & XP) by their DNS names, without setting up a DNS server. I could do so with one linux machine, but it's not always switched on. In my LAN I use d-link DI-524 as a switch, wireless access point and router to the internet. It acts as a DHCP server because some of the workstations (the wireless ones) are mobile=Laptops and I don't want to use fix IP addresses. The strange thing is that in the web-configuration console of the d-link router I can see the hostnames of all connected workstations, but I can't access them between each other by their hostnames, only by their IP addresses. Is there any solution?
Thanks for you help. Maros
