Cisco Router as DNS Server
Posted on 2010-09-11
I'm trying to figure out if this is possible... I've read that you can take a cisco router and set it to cache/forward DNS. So, I've done that with my home router (An 881W) - and it's working great; what I'm hoping to accomplish though is to have the PC's in the house register their names dynamically to the Cisco DNS server just as they would if I were using a Windows DNS server.
Is that possible? Basically I'm trying to get it working so I have DNS resolution of all the PC's in the home - by automatically appending the home DNS name (say Billspalace.com) - so if I try to ping officepc (and dhcp appends the suffix billspalace.com) the router should try to look for officepc.billspalace.com and know the IP because officepc registered itself via dynamic dns during the dhcp process.
I hope this is making sense; It's 4:00AM and I've been in IOS all day.
