I have added a machine to my network. One of my Windows machines (Vista Business) can ping it and see it, however, my XP machine cannot see the machine.
I have changed the c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file and added the entry:
Strangely enough, I can ping 123.345.567.890 from the XP machine and get a reply, however when I attempt to ping foobar from the XP machine, I get a:
Can not find host foomachine. Error message
I am able to ping foobar (both by IP address and hostname) from my Vista machine.
Any ideas on what may be causing this, and how to resolve it?
