I have been working on a small Linux based Intranet for some weeks. There is
a Linux box with Apache called 'Log', serving three W95 clients and a NT
server. Everything was OK until this week. I had configured access using
<hosts> file on Windows, and have not setup the DNS access. When clients
connected, the IE showed <Intranet local zone>, as I had configured to
connect to server name <Log> and not to an URL.
But this week the IE clients on W95 and NT are trying to connect through
Internet access (I mean, there is no <Intranet local Zone> message on IE
status bar, but <Internet Zone> instead) and they don't find the Linux
server address <http://log/>
I have Samba installed and it is working OK, the clients can access Linux
directories. On the other side, my network neighborhood searching can find
the <Log> server without problem, so I guess there is a problem with Apache
or network configuration.
The IP addresses are not changed, neither are the configuration files on
Linux or Windows boxes.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
