I'm setting up a new machine to act as a proxy / NAT / gateway / firewall
machine for my little network.
eth1 is my internal network card and eth2 is the external interface.
I need to tell dhcp not to worry about eth2, which apparently is a command line
thing - I can't see how to configure it for start-up at boot. There's no mention
of the option in the dhcpd.conf documentation.
Of course I could put it in the sysv init script for dhcpd, but that's not
exactly standard for config items in linux I thought.
There is a reference to dhcpd working out itself whether an interface is
non-broadcast, in which case it won't listen for broadcast dhcp requests. but
other than that, I can't see what the option could be.
Secondly, once I get this issue resolved, what IP address should I allocate the
internal interface? Presumably 192.168.0.1 will be fine?
And lastly, how do I set up the server to do DNS just for my LAN - I mean for
example I want to be able to ssh from one machine to another by the host names
I've given them.
