Lion server private vs. internet host name
Posted on 2012-03-25
im setting up a lion server as a file server, mail server, ical, address book, and wiki server. I'll also be running as an open directory master, serving a mix of approx 15 desktops/laptops.
am i better off setting it with a private network name, such as server.mycompany.private, or with an internet routable name, such as server.mycompany.com?
Are there security concerns for its host name as internet routable?
ideally i'd like the laptops to access ical / address book / wiki / mail outside of the local network, not sure if the host name matters for that, and also not sure if the routable name represents a significant security threat.
