Populate the /etc/hosts files on both BSD machines with the IP addresses,
FQDNs of all boxes and their hostnames. Populate
c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts on the windows box with the same
information. The hosts file in Win9X-ME is c:\windows\hosts.
You only have 3 machines here which means 4 lines must be typed one time
and then transferred by FTP to the other 2 machines.
Services such as telnetd, ftpd and sshd do a reverse name lookup on their
clients. If you are not running a local DNS you have to populate the
hosts files or you can just sit and wait for the reverse lookup to time
