hello
I want to use wsad (on windows 2000) with a cvs repository on a linux redhat 8 machine.
I've installed cvs and configure xinetd on the linux machine, but when I want to connect on the repository with wsad, it can't find the host.
In my hosts file I've put the ip adress with the hostmachine.domain
I can ping the ip adress from my windows machine, but can't ping with name.
The problem is how can I define a valid hostname for the windows domain on my linux machine?
thanks for your help

I think the actual hosts file under Windows 2000 is named "LMHOSTS". It was under Win/9x anyway.
Actually, its really preferable to have your domain adminstrator add the Linux host to Domain Name Services (DNS).
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
