Got a little issue that I'm hoping someone can help me out with. New to the forums, but I've been around the Howto stuff for a while Either way any help is appricated. Here is the info. I just setup a PCLinuxOS BE server, got everything I need running on it, but from my Windows Domain I cannot ping via Hostname. Current Information: Lets call the FQDN for my Linux Machine linux.windowsdomain.com And the FQDN for my Windows Domain Controller housing DNS is domaincontroller.windowsdomain.com Now on the domain controller I've entered in the FQDN for the linux server linux.windowsdomain.com as an PTR record, but I still cannot ping the Linux box via the FQDN. I can however after setting up the DNS information on the Linux box, ping ANYTHING via its FQDN or alias on the Windows Domain. So I can ping the Domaincontroller or any workstation, but cannot ping the Linux machine back.
