I have a windows 2000 network with xp clients.
I have had some instances with names not being correct when you do an
nslookup on them
if I ping auser I will get back a 126.96.36.199
however if I Ping 188.8.131.52 -a
I get xpe00806420e241 which is probably from the image install.
where is the issue? is it on the box or in dns somewhere and does anyone
know how to fix it?
