Our network IT people hate us, so our IP addresses are not entered into the DNS lookup automatically if we run a non-Windows OS. How do I get my Windows 7 machine to find the non-Windows OS machine by using the hostname?
In Windows XP, I added the hostname and IP address of the linux box to the
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file. Under 64-bit Windows 7, how do I do that? I can't just edit the host file by opening it with Notepad from the file explorer window.
