In my work environment, I'm running FC5. Another (Windows) machine running WINS provides dhcp and dns for a lot of the machines. I'm currently editing my /etc/hosts every time a machine name changes (the WINS leases are very short), which is a real pain.
Is there a way to configure my dns lookup to also check the WINS server? I've set these items in my /etc/samba/smb.conf ...
wins support = no
wins server = 10.1.0.1
... so that my smb.d will _not_ act as a wins server, but will use another wins server. I'm assuming smb.d will be able to talk to the wins server at 10.1.0.1 now, but I don't know how to get my dns to hook into that.
Any help will be much appreciated !
