RPiTC 3 Windows don't see the Pi Hostname Name
Hi

How to do to see on windows the name of the RPiTC 3 hostname?

I have installed, samba, winbid and i had config the smb.conf and nsswitch.conf without success.

I can see the RPiTC 3 resources share via the IP address but not via it hostname.

example on windows i type:
net view \\xx.xx.xx.xx or ping xx.xx.xx.xx and is ok
net view \\rpitc01 or ping rpitc01 doesn't work

I'll appreciated all the help.

Thanks adavnced

Hi,

best is to configure your DHCP/DNS Server for proper name resolution.
If you want this on client side without DNS you have to use wins in samba.
