I am trying to setup my Linux machine as a server on a local network.
Later on I will be connecting to the Internet by dial-up. At the
moment I have set the Linux box up as the gateway and dns server and
it is also the server on the network. I am using debian of
course (kernel 2.0.30).
I want to be able to connect to the linux box using both windows 95
machines and windows 3.x machines. At the moment I am having hassles
setting up bind. I have read the dns howto and have got some of it
setup. At the moment the 95 machines are able to connect to the
linux machine if I use the ip address and as long as I have entries
for each machine in the zone files. I am unable to connect usig the
host name or domain name. I would like to know what I have to put in
what files so that it will work properly. I would also like to know
how to se tthe dns up so that I don't have to have entries for each
machine that it going to connect as I don't think it is right. :)
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
