I have a mandrake 10.0. I used it as MySQL server. I don't have problem with it when it comes to network coz by just providing hostname (dbserver) the server can be pinged (from other pc) by ping dbserver, can connect to MySQL using hostname too and even FTP by ftp dbserver. Now, I installed a server using Fedora Core 5 and will be used it for MySQL and FTP server instead of mandrake 10.0. I set the hostname as dbftpserver. My problem is can't ping it using hostname (dbftpserver) and also from ubuntu i can't ping other pc using hostname or pc name (Windows XP). Anybody here knows how to fix it? Please help me.
