ma flag

I am using PuTTY to connect to a Lunix machine on local network via ssh and it works fine if I specify the IP address. However I cannot do it using the machine's host name.

DigitalOcean Droplet ssh to use a named key
bd flag

It's been a while since I've done this and configured ssh keys.

I generated an ssh key with a different file name than id_rsa

I have a DigitalOcean Droplet where I placed a named ssh key pair on creation.

Then I created a ~/.ssh/config on my local machine where I configured my Host to use the proper identity file.

I made my hostname the IP of the droplet. I believe I can do that.

DNS suffix not being used with windows server hostnames over VPN
it flag

Our internal network is a windows domain, Internally, if a user needs to get to a file server share, they can navigate to \\fileserver\share or \\\share and both resolve without issue.
