Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

DNS will solve your problems. I’m not clear if you want the AS400 to ping to PC names or your machine to ping to PC names.

    I am using 'ping' as an example of ways computers can communicate with each other. My goal is to refer to PC's in the network from the AS/400 by their names without having to add entries to the AS/400 host name table. I can ping the AS/400 by its NetServer name from a PC on the network. But I cannot ping that PC from the AS/400 by its name, only by its ip address. Thank you
