I have an rs6000/320-h set up on a token ring subnet, which looks
up a sun 490 on an ethernet subnet as the nameserver. Problem is,
from any of the clients and the servers on the ethernet subnet I can
ping the rs6000/320-h by both it's hostname and the ip address, but
I can't ping, rlogin, etc. by hostname from the rs6000/320-h any of
the servers/clients on the ethernet. The NIS services are not yet
turned-on on the rs6000.
If I move the /etc/resolv.conf and add appropriate entries in the
/etc/hosts on the 6000, ping, etc. by hostname works (obviously).
What did I miss? Does this have anything to do with DNS not being
supported on the SUN/OS? If so, how do I fix it? Thnx in advance.
