How do I make the hostname discoverable?

Post by bjrosen » 2019/02/14 03:20:36

When I look at the network map on my router I notice than my Fedora 29 systems, Win10, Phone, IoT devices all appear by name but all of my CentOS7 machines appear by IP address only. How do I make the CentOS7 system's hostnames discoverable?

BTW it's my routers that don't see the hostnames, nmap sees them fine.

Never mind. It's SAMBA that makes the difference. The Fedora boxes had SAMBA on them, the CentOS7 boxes didn't. When I installed SAMBA the hostname showed up in the router's network map.
