Windows Network Name Resolution - Experts needed!
I'm having a bit of trouble trying to understand how my windows machines actually resolve names into ip addresses.
When I ran serverless Win98 networks, the automagic browser master mechanisim seemed to just automagically work (or sometimes not :( )
When I introduced W2k3 servers with DNS and DHCP I just thought that the DNS server was doing all the work and I was now doing things properly.
However, following an incident at two of my schools, I've come to think that my DNS server is not being using to resolve local devices such as cachepilots, linux print servers and wireless accesspoints (and probably not printers in somecases) and that I'm still basically using browse master mechanisims :(
Do any of you have say access points on your network and are able to address them by name rather than IP address and if so - how do you acheive this?
