Ok, this is not
directly a backuppc problem, but I can't find an answer anywhere... My backuppc
will not run because when it pings the other computers on the network it does
not receive the correct ip for the netbios name.
For example, I have
one machine named 'gary' with a static ip of 192.168.123.200 but if you ping
'gary' you get an address of 65.xxx.xxx.xxx (it is a verizon ip address, I
believe, I did not copy the whole address here, that is not
I also get wrong ip
addresses for computers that have DHCP enabled (non-static ip addresses).
I am running Win XP on three machines (one is a dual boot w/Mandriva 2008.1),
Win 2000 on one, Mandrivia Linux on one (not the dual boot machine) with a USR
robotics wireless router. DSL is from verizon.
I have searched the
net and have not had much luck. I have reset the router, cleared hosts
files, and have issued DNS flush and reconnect commands on my windows
machines with no changes. I have also tried using rsync instead of just
the samba share method, but still no change.
