pseudo host/domain names for internal server, with FireFox Linux
Posted on 2014-08-21
I have internal server running on a FireFox Linux box. I only intended to use it internal within out organization. It is accessed with a internal "IP" address 10.2.10.34, for web, ftp, ssh shell, etc.
But I would wish to able to access it with a hostname and domain name, like, "belltower.company.com" just internally of course. So far I have no trouble change the server's name to "belltower" and I know company.com. Is there a way to make an entry in the DNS of our network (or will DNS automatically learn here is a new host?) so it maps
belltower.company.com to 10.2.10.34 (the internal IP)
Do I need to contact our net administrator this? If I do what should I ask.
Also, do I need to set a domain name for the server?
