I have a mix of windows and linux machines on my network and all the windows machines can ping and access other machines via the machine names including the router itself by \mynetn900
But the linux machines always resolve any machine name I put to a specific IP that is outside my network. I have no idea what this machine is that they are resolving to.
For example if my two linux machines are called ABC and XYZ. From ABC, if I ping XYZ, it goes to an external 67.63.x.x IP which is always the same. What’s interesting is if I do a ping test12345 or ping TUV which don’t exist, it also goes to this same IP.
Both linux machines are set for dhcp with a reservation on the router side. Both have 192.168.1.1 as their dns server verified with nslookup.
Windows machines ping both ABC and XYZ fine and resolve to their proper 192.168.1.x IPs.
