You have a domain name, you could name the Linux box as the default domain name, but as well.. whoever you have your domain name reg'd with.. you would need to make sure that they are doing DNS or "somebody" is doing DNS for the domain name and is pointing it to the coorect IP.

Is this a dedicated connection? With static IP?
No static.. maybe Dns2go.com might help...

(You didn't mention what version but normally)
RedHat check /etc/sysconfig
also /etc/sysconfig/network
also /etc/sysconfig/network/network-scripts ifcfg-eth0

To use your Linux box as the default gateway.. you would want to look into Squid http://www.squid.org and also
NAT (Network Address Translation) Various different search engines will return great data on NAT. NAT as the Keyword.

A direction, not a perfect answer...

On the command line(as root): hostname <Fully quaified name here>

To make it automatic at boot time edit the file '/etc/sysconfig/network' and put a line like this in it:

HOSTNAME=<fully qualified name here>

For turning your Linux box into a gateway you want to use masquerading. Go to the HOWTO section of www.linuxdoc.org and look at the IP-Masquerading HOWTO and the IPChains HOWTO.

edit the file /etc/resolv.conf and add the following lines (change the nameserver ip's to your DNS servers).


domain mydomain.com
nameserver 1.2.3.4
nameserver 1.2.3.5
search mydomain.com

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:

Split points between MFCRich, Mindbender and Blackdiamond, as all have valid input to what is in fact a very poor question.

Please leave any comments here within the next seven days.
