Host name resolution
« on: May 12, 2005, 11:28:51 AM »
Hi all
How can I get linux  system  hostname in a network from my linux or windows machine ??


 As in windows, ping -a option gives the hostname, so what should be used for that??

ping - a 192.10.10.1 returns its hostname (  in windows)

Thanks in advance..............

I was looking for some other option  thru any network commands available in linux but did not find it.

so Now DNS is the only solution for this.
