Im asking whether i can ping from router to pc by name ??

Im attaching my router configuration image file here.

Please help me ......

To enable PC to resolve the domain name, you need to specify the DNS setting on the PC. (for example, your router)

Also to make the router become a DNS server, you need the 'ip dns server' command on router.

Otherwise, the host mapping on router can be used by router itself only.

Sir,

         Thnxxx 4 the response.

As u suggested i entered the command "ip dns server". Unfortunately, this command was not recognized. 

Im working with packet tracer.  I have attached the image file of my project.

Yes, i have entered the dns server ip as router's ip.

But cant find the result.

     Any solution ??
