Ubuntu Server 20.04.3 LTS VirtualBox vm on Windows 10 host. Both 64 bit, using bridged network connection.
Latest Webmin/Virtualmin using GPL intall.sh.
Install Ubuntu Server, selecting SSH option and using the hostname
Initially, I can only ping/ssh/sftp using the ip address of the server unless the server’s hostname and ip is added to the Windows hosts file.
If I then install samba on the server, I can ping/ssh/sftp the server without the need to add the server’s hostname and ip to the Windows hosts file.
After installing Virtualmin, I find myself back at step 2, hence I can’t
https://u64s-1[.lan]:10000, but have to use
https://ip-address:100000unless I edit the Windows hosts file again.
Is using the Windows hosts file to enable the use of the server’s hostname the only option in this situation?
Thanks for any advice.
