I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on a Virtual Machine (Virtualbox). The network adapter is attached using bridged adapter.
I can ping the guest OS by IP but I can't ping it via hostname.
I already installed Samba and winbind. I also edited /etc/nsswitch.conf to and 'wins'.
Does the settings takes time to take into effect? What other things can I try to be able to ping the Ubuntu OS by hostname?
