Re: Linux "ping -a " analogue



Yes,
this is exactly what I was looking for!

Thank you very much!

It seems that this tool is part of Samba and Samba has to be installed ...

Assuming your PC's are using WINS, you could try nmblookup:

All machines in the LAN use DHCP.
Do I still need to put the IP/names in /etc/hosts?

Are there any other options?

I tried "nslookup 192.168.0.1" but it didn't work.
It works fine for public IP addresse but it doesn't work for the


private


ones. (192.168.0.1)

Is there any other command/tool I can use to resolve IP addresses into names for PCs in my LAN????

I think the Windows version uses NETBIOS to resolve names that don't have a DNS entry.

Use nslookup. That will return the name as registered with a DNS server. It won't use NETBIOS so private IP address probably won't be resolved unless its in your /etc/hosts files.

Hi gurus,


Windows' command "ping -a 192.168.0.1" will resolve the IP address
192.168.0.1 into to a name if possible.
What is the linux analogue of this command?
Linux ping command doesn't seem to be able to do that...
Any ideas?
