I'm new to this forum so this is probably the wrong place (sorry )
I'm looking to set up a little web server on my home network for website development and so I can teach myself a little bit about web hosting and how to optimise sites etc...
The problem I have at the minute is connecting using the hostname of the raspberry pi. There's a couple of tutorials I have followed that are basically the same steps.
I've enabled SSH and I can use PuTTY to remotely control the Pi but only using the local IP address 192.168.xxx.xxx
I've tried to change the hostname by editing /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname, as well as just hostname xxxxxxxx
For some reason I can't connect to it with the new hostname (or the old one), have I made an error in the Pi side of things or is it likely to be a router problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
The tutorials I used are http://tinkernut.com/wiki/page/Episode_320 and http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspber ... /?ALLSTEPS
