Re: DNS [subtopic: Re: Internet Connection Sharing, was: Re: Ethernet]
your gateway ip# is something that your ISP gives you...
if you are using dhcp... your isp will define your ip#, gateway and dns
if you are using static ip#... you will be given your ip# range...
- "machine A" is your gateway and firewall
- you pick which ip# you want to use as your gateway...
- you pick your own machine name and domain name etc..
- you run your own dns .... ( reverse dns might be trickier )
In either case above...
- all other machines in your lan, will connect to the 2nd NIC port
on machine A with a local 192.168.1.x ip#
- machine A will need to have ip_forward turned on and other
options ... and you'd need to do ip_masq too
- see the IP_Masquerate-HOWTO and the Firewall-HOWTO
machine B points all its services to machine a...
- machine A is the gateway for machine B
- machine A is the dns for machine B
- machine A is the ??? for machine B
-- consider it fun .... and not as bad/big of a pain in the rumps..
have fun playing/learning
