Our network IT people hate us, so our ip addresses are not entered in to 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 WinXP, 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.
