I have a DNS issue. I set up a Samba share inside my LAN (at my house) on Ubuntu machine with hostname
einstein. When I execute
ping einstein from a Windows OS (Windows 10), to make sure that
einstein is known to my computer, I receive the following output:
> ping einstein Pinging einstein.uwaterloo.ca [126.96.36.199] with 32 bytes of data:
So, I changed the
einstein hostname to
turing (changing the
smb.conf files) and received the following output:
> ping turing Pinging turing.cs.uwaterloo.ca [188.8.131.52] with 32 bytes of data:
At this point, I should mention that I am a student of the University of Waterloo (
uwaterloo.ca) and that I use the Cisco Anywhere Connect client to access University resources remote from campus. So, thinking this may be a DNS caching issue, I flushed my DNS cache (
ipconfig /flushdns a few times) and restarted my Windows computer (a few times) to no avail.
What is happening?
