if you configure your hosts file on your PC are you able to connect from the client?

Maybe you should try to troubleshoot by eliminating the obvious first, such as, are you able to connect to the Linux server at all? Make sure the workstation is good before looking at the server.

You may have already tried this... just an idea.

it sounds like you tested to make sure the linux server could resolve dns names. In that sense the server is acting like a dns client to whoever the server is set to on it.

To get it to act as a dns server you need to run a program like BIND that servers dns entries to the client machines. This is a complicated process. Have fun and hope this clears it up.
