I have several machines, both virtual and physical, in my home network. Currently I have to connect to each machine via IP address. The one main machine I connect with to all the other machines is running Windows Vista.
Is there a way I can have some sort of DNS capability inside my network so I can refer to these machines with a name instead of IP?
I think this would be a common problem in most households (running a few computers) and I think there might be some simple solutions out there. This would be something most routers should support out of the box - but why don't they?
Can anyone recommend some of these or an easy way to accomplish this?
