On my work's network, my new debian headless VM is not visible via its hostname.
I can see other VMs on my machine from the headless VM, and I can see other machines on the network from the headless VM (that is,
ping machine works for both cases). I can also ping the host machine.
I tried installing acahi-daemon and avahi-discover, as per this thread with no success. Additionally, I edited dhclient.conf to have the line
send host-name "Peridot"; (Peridot being the VM's hostname).
Specifically, I'm hosting an instance of
haste-server on the machine, which I can access via browser by the machine's IP but not by it's hostname (which is what I'd like). I cannot ping it from any other machine on the network by name, but it can be reached via its IP.
Any help appreciated
