Networking issue resolving hosts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a Windows 7 laptop that I run several client/server applications on.  When the machine is connected to the internet, they run fine.   When it is not connected, the hostname lookup (looking up the name of the laptop itself) fails (GetAddrInfo in C++, InetAddress.getLocalHost in Java).   The code works fine on Unix/Linux/earlier versions of Windows.  Probably some sort of Network Configuration setting on Windows 7, but I can't find it.  Where should I ask about this?

    Thank you,

    Dave
