ip to domain name
Posted on 2004-09-02
i just install a fedora core 1. i have succesfully configure a router with 4 NIC. each NIC is connected to the pc for webserver, ftp server, vpn server, mail server. i have a static ip where i get it from my isp. ( all ip are just sample )
static ip from isp: 188.8.131.52, netmask: 255.255.255.252, first dns: 184.108.40.206 second dns: 220.127.116.11
1) let say my eth0 which connected to xdsl modem. so i configure like this:
1st. dns: 18.104.22.168
2nd dns: 22.214.171.124
( is it my configuration correct? is my ip on eth0 must be add one more digit than the static ip that isp give me?).
2) i can get thru from external to get in into my ftp server. but i have to type the ip number which hard to remember. what else do i need to do to make my name as fc.abc.com?...what are the step do i need to follow?...i heard about dns and bind...what is that?...i installed both of them in my fedora but haven't configure yet...
