Domain name Service for Red Hat 5.1
Posted on 1998-07-29
I am trying to setup an intranet using Linux (Red Hat Linux 5.1) as my server and a Power Mac as a client machine. During the installation I assigned a Host name and class C IP address to the machine. I was then asked to assign the Primary server IP address. I used the same IP address assigned for the host, thinking that the host machine will also be the server; moreover I gave the machine a FQDN (i.e., nat for host / nat. mydomain.com). I tested the intranet connection by entering the IP address of the server in the browser window on my Mac and eureka! However, I was unsuccessful when I entered the domain name. Can this problem be solved during installation or do I need to modify a file i.e., host.conf or resolv.conf? Was I correct to use the same IP for host and primary server on the same machine?
