Emmett Dulaney continues his series on Linux-Windows integration
with a step-by-step description of setting up name resolution on
both operating systems:
"Many years ago, when TCP/IP was new, networks were small,
consisting of only a handful of hosts at each site. These dozens of
users accessed the network as dumb terminals connected to a host.
The majority of a user's work would be done on one host, with an
occasional need to interact with another host, such as when sending
email to another user or accessing a file."
"In those days - and in that environment if it still exists
today - the use of /etc/hosts files was/is ideal for name
resolution. In a larger environment, however, this solution is
unacceptable, and DNS (domain name system) must be used."
