I have a SSH server on my (enterprise) Windows network, with hostname (defined in
Applications. On the network, it appears as
APPLICATIONS. (I don't know why the whole name is uppercased….)
When I use my Windows 10 session, I can connect to the server using PuTTY (with hostname
APPLICATIONS). However, when I use my Linux Mint session & OpenSSH client, I’m unable to connect to it using its hostname, whatever case I use (
applications) but I’m still able to connect to it via its local IP.
When I try to connect, I get the following error message:
ssh: Could not resolve hostname applications: Temporary failure in name resolution.
Note that hostname is written lower-case, whatever the case I use in my
ssh command, so I wonder if it's the cause of the client not being able to connect to the server.
Do you know where does this problem comes from? And, more important, how can I solve it?
