Hello all:

My first post here, and I begin with a (possibly super) newbie query.

'nslookup' fails to resolve my local machine which I have named: 'soma'.

Here are some data:


$hostname -d


I connect to the LAN via DHCP. Lookup on any remote website/or my own
Ubuntu box succeeds.

Where should I be looking into?

Many TIA
