Setting up Debian to be firewall, proxy and dns server.
Posted on 2005-03-16
I am very new to Linux. I would like to setup a firewall, proxy and dns server on a machine using Debian.
I started with the dns but am now stuck, partly because I don't understand DNS well either. Here are some facts about my system:
I registered a domain with networksolutions and the nameservers they allocated me are:
NS93.worldnic.com and NS94.worldnic.com
My ISP's addresses has given me a DNS and gateway address, i.e.
184.108.40.206 for their DNS
220.127.116.11 for their gateway
I have 2 NIC's in my machine, and one is connected to a wireless device, the other to my hub.
eth1 = 192.168.20.1 connected to hub
eth0 = 18.104.22.168 connected to wireless
22.214.171.124 is the address for the wireless device
I have no idea how to set this up and also what sequence to use. Should I do dns first, then firewall then proxy?
I started with the dns so would prefer to just carry on with that if possible.
Any help is appreciated.
