Resolve Linux hostnames on Windows Systems


The following are the steps for enabling the ability to ping a Debian Linux system by hostname on a Windows system;

Step 1: Update and install packages with the following command.


Step 2: Launch a text editor (in this case nano) to modify nsswitch.conf.

 Step 3: Modify the "hosts:" portion to the following and save the changes.
  Now you should be able to resolve the Linux hostname on a Windows system.

Cheers,
