I am trying to get various workstations to be able to go to "https://webserver1.newgoloka.local
" in other words to resolve the FQDN. just https://webserver1
without the domain name resolves fine. What I am trying to do is get SSL set up properly (just for the internal intranet). The browser will throw a warning if the name typed in the address bar does not match the exact name on the certificate.
I can also ping the FQDN from any workstation, just fine. I also have a little C program that calls gethostbyname() and that works fine. I have also tried writing a little 4 line php file that calls gethostbyname(). That does NOT work when accessed in the browser. it works with anything other than internal FQDN's.
As far as I know my dns server is set up properly.
Problem exists on various hosts, windows and linux.
DNS server: bind9 on ubuntu 14.04
Webserver: "webserver1" ubuntu 14.04 kubuntu desktop installed
