I'm hoping someone here can help me with a joomla hostname resolution dilemma I'm having with a t joomla 1.5 turnkey linux vm installation I have running in my office that I'm trying to deploy soon. Right now I can access the joomla frontpage by the IP address http://192.168.1.227/ but if I change the url to the hostname I'm trying to access it as http://cointranet/ I get an Unable to connect error.
I can run a ping command from my pc and can successfully ping cointranet, which in the command window the hostname is properly translated to the 192.168.1.227 ip address.
I followed instructions I found on this webiste and installed the dhcp3-client and samba and rebooted the appliance (which after these two packages were installed the above ping cointranet command started working, before those installs it would not work)
I've also edited the files \etc\hosts, \etc\hostname\, and \etc\network\interfaces
and in the webmin and shell-in-a-box it's showing the cointranet hostname.
With all of the above accomplished, what steps are left for me to do so that I can access the joomla installation via http://cointranet/ ?
Thanks in advance,
