Setting up a DNS Server with Cable Modem
Posted on 2000-05-01
I have a cable modem thru @home. Running RH6.2. I have a static IP address so I want to make the linux box a DNS server. My question is: when setting up the cable modem for linux, I had to change the hostname of the box to the one supplied by @home. I don't think I can change it. I wanted to name it dns1@mydomain. I have 2 NIC cards in the linux box, one for the cable connection(outside) and one for the internal network( I am using IP masq so my other Win boxes can connect). What are my options? Can I give the box 2 hosts names. Is there a way I can change the hostname back to dns@mydomain without losing my connection? If you need more details, let me know.
